10 HR Myths Revealed: Hiring, Pay, Leave, & More

10 HR Myths Revealed: Hiring, Pay, Leave, & More

Employers must follow a number of increasingly complex federal, state, and local laws. Certain myths surrounding these laws can make it even harder to comply. Below, we debunk 10 myths that employers may encounter. Myth: When federal, state, and local laws conflict, the employer gets to choose which one to follow. Fact: When federal, state, and local laws conflict, the one most generous to the employee generally applies. For example, if an employee is covered by the federal, state, and local minimum wage, the employee is entitled to the highest minimum wage among the three. Myth: It’s a best practice to ask about criminal history on application forms. Fact: In numerous jurisdictions, employers are prohibited from asking about criminal history on application forms. In many cases, these laws require employers to wait until later in the pre-employment process, such as after a conditional job offer, before asking about criminal history. While there is no federal law specifically prohibiting employers from asking applicants if they’ve ever been convicted of a...

HR Technologist Features ADP’s Linda Mougalian on Creating Inspired Employee Experiences

Linda Mougalian, ADP® division vice president of product marketing and strategy, recently took part in “HRTalk,” an interview series published in HR Technologist that features leadership at HR technology companies discussing how they are redefining the way HR functions. In the interview, Linda discussed how technology can improve the employee experience and be a competitive advantage for companies. She said, “An employee’s work-life balance is one of the biggest components of their overall life experience and by making the value of work more transparent to them, you can improve engagement and job satisfaction.” According to the ADP Research Institute® study, “Evolution of Work 2.0“, only about one-third of U.S. employees give their companies high marks on career performance, compensation, learning management, onboarding, succession planning and recruitment strategies. ADP is helping clients provide a more compelling employee experience with tools that enhance all of these processes. Recently, we’re taking even greater strides to improve the pay experience with our acquisition of Global Cash Card™. Read more of the interview in...

MoreDirect Transforms its HR Function with the Help of ADP Workforce Now®

MoreDirect, Inc. began in the early 1990s as a business-to-business hardware reseller. Today, the Florida-based company provides a broad range of IT hardware, software, and services to private-sector companies with 2,000 or more employees throughout the United States. As the company grew, so did its need to support a larger—and geographically diverse—workforce. The current footprint of MoreDirect’s employee base covers 30 states, and the vast majority of its 350 employees work out of their homes. Prior to Grisell Martinez, Senior Human Resources and Payroll Manager, joining MoreDirect in 2004, the company used QuickBooks to do payroll and HR was the traditional paper mill of forms governed by manual processes and procedures. “We used to be a very transactional, paperwork-driven department,” she recalls.

The HR department can now focus on its key initiative—recruiting new employees. Martinez says, “We’re definitely spending more of our...

5 Lessons Learned from the Recent Harassment Complaints

5 Lessons Learned from the Recent Harassment Complaints

Nondiscrimination laws require employers to maintain a work environment that is free from sexual and other types of harassment. Beyond compliance reasons, promoting a harassment-free workplace is the right thing to do and critical to maintaining a productive workforce. However, recent scandals in the media, academia, Hollywood, and Congress are indications that sexual harassment remains a significant problem in the workplace. In light of these improprieties, here are five key takeaways to help you assess your anti-harassment efforts: #1: A policy isn’t enough. While having a written anti-harassment policy is important (and even required in some jurisdictions), it will mean little if you don’t enforce it. If you observe or are put on notice that misconduct may have occurred, you have a duty to launch a prompt, impartial, and thorough investigation. Depending on the circumstances, consider whether an internal investigation is sufficient or if you need to have an outside third party conduct an impartial investigation. If an investigation reveals that harassment occurred, take immediate and appropriate corrective action...
