ADP Legislative Update: New House Bill Could Make WOTC Permanent

ADP Legislative Update: New House Bill Could Make WOTC Permanent

On August 11, 2017, House of Representatives (H.R.) Bill 3652 was introduced and, if passed, would amend the Internal Revenue Code to make the Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) permanent for qualified new hires who begin work after December 31, 2019. What you need to know: The Bill has officially moved to the House Ways & Means Committee for consideration. With processes to reform the tax code scheduled to begin in September, the Ways & Means Committee may be delayed in considering H.R. Bill 3652. The Congressional Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) will need to score this legislation and estimate its cost over a 10 year period—it’s unlikely we’d see a vote without this information.

ADP celebrates National Payroll Week!

ADP celebrates National Payroll Week!

For 22 years now, National Payroll Week has accompanied Labor Day to celebrate over 150 million hard-working Americans and the payroll professionals who get them their wages. Also for 22 years, ADP is proud to be the sole Diamond Sponsor of National Payroll Week. Founded by the American Payroll Association (APA), the week has unswervingly focused on one goal: to help workers better understand and manage their pay. Eight percent of workers reported last year that they were not certain if their paychecks were the correct amount. Another 22 percent were only somewhat certain. And payroll professionals’ work goes beyond wages too. American workers’ social security, Medicare, child support and other benefits are tied into the same system. The APA is dedicated to ensuring workers understand their whole paycheck, including the impact of different benefits and withholdings, and ADP is committed to help. This September 4-8, 2017, local APA will host presentations for schools, civic groups and others to spread understanding of the payroll system and its benefits. ADP...

Overtime Rules: Where Are They Now?

Overtime Rules: Where Are They Now?

May 2016, the Department of Labor (DOL) released a Final Rule that would have increased the minimum salary required to be exempt from overtime under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). However, just before the rule was to take effect, a federal judge temporarily blocked the DOL from implementing the rule. Here is an overview and update on the status of the Final Rule: Background: The FLSA requires employers to pay most employees at least the federal minimum wage for each hour worked and overtime pay for all hours worked over 40 in a workweek. The FLSA allows for exemptions for certain employees who work in administrative, professional, executive, highly compensated, outside sales, and computer professional jobs. These employees are known as “exempt” employees. To be considered “exempt,” these employees must generally satisfy three tests: Salary-level test: Employees must earn a weekly salary that meets the minimum requirements. Salary-basis test: With very limited exceptions, the employer must pay employees their full salary in any week they perform work, regardless...

Four Ways To Check the Pulse Of A Workforce

Four Ways To Check the Pulse Of A Workforce

Most employers, and their advisers, probably wish they could peek into the minds of employees to understand what workers are thinking, gain perspective on day-to-day frustrations and use that information to help make employees’ lives easier. These vital insights can inform an employer’s ability to help employees feel more empowered, do great work, feel secure and supported in their organizational roles and to build a better company culture. Taking the pulse of a workforce shouldn’t be a guessing game. An informal process of ‘throwing ideas against the wall to see what sticks’ wastes time, wastes resources and only serves to frustrate employees. There are better ways to understand what makes employees tick. A good place to start is seeing work from their point of view. A recent ADP study, Fixing the Talent Management Disconnect, shows that there is a gap between how employers and employees 72% of employers believe performance reviews are an important milestone for career development, only 54% of employees agree. Further, only 15% of employees say...
