Overtime Overhaul:  It’s Time to Prepare Your Business for Sweeping Changes

Overtime Overhaul: It’s Time to Prepare Your Business for Sweeping Changes

In July 2015, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) proposed changes to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) that would substantially overhaul overtime pay rules. The proposed changes more than double the salary threshold that helps determine whether workers are eligible for time-and-a-half pay when working more than 40 hours per week. If finalized, these changes will make nearly five million workers eligible for overtime pay as early as this year, unless their salary is raised. In March 2016, the DOL submitted the proposal to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review. The OMB could approve the rule as is or ask the DOL for changes. The final rule could be issued as early as later this month; once final, employers will likely have 60 days in which to comply. For businesses, this could be the next big compliance challenge following the Affordable Care Act.  So it’s concerning that many employers are not fully prepared to navigate the new rules.

Navigating Compliance Challenges with a Professional Employer Organization

Navigating Compliance Challenges with a Professional Employer Organization

Small and midsized business owners today are faced with a host of employment-related regulations including, paid sick-leave laws, changing minimum wage, state and local regulations, and the Affordable Care Act (ACA). To say the HR landscape continues to become increasingly complex for this group of employers would be quite an understatement! In fact, the ADP Midsized Business Owners Study recently found that 41 percent of midsized employers rank the volume of government regulations as their top concern and 32 percent rank health care reform legislation as their top concern. This is part of the reason why the appeal of Professional Employer Organizations (PEO) has grown considerably over the last few years: Business owners are searching for experts who can help relieve the burden of managing their compliance risk. For example, Global Kids, Inc., a nonprofit educational organization for global learning and youth development, decided to partner with ADP TotalSource. Having recently doubled in size, Global Kids currently has more than 80 employees across two states and reaches over 14,000...

Form 1095-C: Last-Minute Information as Tax Deadline Looms

The New York Times featured ADP Senior Vice President and General Manager of Health Care Reform Victor Saliterman in an article on the first new major tax form in decades, Form 1095-C. The article, The 1095 Tax Form for Health Care Coverage: What You Need to Know, addresses commonly asked questions about Form 1095-C, including why employees need it and what they should do if they haven’t received it yet: Most tax filers do not need to do much with it, except file it away with their tax records. But because it is new, the form is causing a bit of confusion,” said Victor Saliterman, vice president and general manager for health care reform at the benefits and payroll administrator ADP. Vic also talked to The Wall Street Journal. The article, Tax Tips for Last-Minute Filers, offers tips for last-minute filers and explains people are scrambling to meet the tax filing deadline this year partly due to confusion over form 1095-C.

In a session that Elaine Clement and I hosted called “Trends and Priorities in Learning Management,” attendees rated the top learning priorities in the context of a discussion about Bersin Maturity Models.  These models are designed to create an understanding of an organization’s level of maturity and the impact that moving up in maturity level can have on the business.  Businesses use them to benchmark their organization’s level of sophistication in given areas and to identify the best practices that are most critical to improving business outcomes.   Here is what HR practitioners said was top of mind for them and the organizations they represent: Leadership Development...
