Court Blocks Start For New Overtime Rules

Court Blocks Start For New Overtime Rules

On November 22, 2016, a judge in a U.S. District Court temporarily blocked the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) overtime rules set to go into effect on December 1, 2016. In an article titled, “Court Blocks Dec. 1 Start For OT Rules”, Sushma Tripathi, ADP’s vice president for workforce planning and benefits consulting, advises companies to continue evaluating their employees’ status under the new rule despite the injunction. “The FSLA (Fair Labor Standards Act) is complex to begin with, so while the rule is delayed, employers should still continue to evaluate the status of their employees by reviewing their jobs’ duties and descriptions and making sure they have employees classified correctly,” said Tripathi.

Don’t Walk. RUN to the Newest Small Business HR Tool

Don’t Walk. RUN to the Newest Small Business HR Tool

By Alex Quevedo, Senior Vice President for ADP Insurance Services The average day in the life of a business owner is busy. Like the head coach of a professional football team, there is a lot to manage for even the most resilient entrepreneur. Coaches deal with game planning, personnel issues, game day logistics, play calling, and travel schedules. Whether you’re managing and distributing work schedules, processing payroll, tracking inventory, establishing pricing, or devising loyalty programs and sales promotions, managing these duties can feel like preparing for the championship game against the best team in the league. ADP’s RUN Powered by ADP® (RUN) platform is designed to help small business owners save time on payroll and other human resource (HR) tasks so they can focus on what matters most, their business. Since handling business insurance and employee health benefits can take up a lot of a business owner’s time, we have rolled out an enhancement to RUN that makes it even easier for our clients to manage them.

To Review or Not to Review. That is Not the Question.

To Review or Not to Review. That is Not the Question.

By Susan Hanold, VP of Talent Management and Strategic Advisory Services, and Sam Finley, VP of Talent Management Client Services, for ADP Certainly, Shakespeare’s Hamlet was contemplating a question far more dire than performance reviews. But the black-and-white nature of his question is still an apt way to depict the current debate in many corporations about the value, frequency and validity of the process used to rate, rank and reward employees. The issue, in our view, is not black and white. It’s most definitely grey. In fact, based on dozens of conversations with ADP® clients, we’d like to suggest that the question is not whether or not to review employees. (That’s an individual decision each company must make based on its unique corporate culture.) The question is: How will your organization revise its talent management strategy to accommodate the needs of today’s multi-faceted workforce? HR leaders are keen to identify a “better,” more effective way to conduct performance reviews while preserving an ability to cultivate and retain their best...

Small Biz is Everybody’s Biz

Small Biz is Everybody’s Biz

All too often, we take local shops in our communities for granted and only realize their value when one day we notice they’ve closed their doors. Were it not for the dedication, passion and commitment of today’s small business owners and their families, the warm feel of downtown areas would be lost forever. Small businesses also create a significant number of job opportunities and boost the economy of their communities. Did you know that small business owners alone added more than 680,000 jobs to the U.S. economy so far this year, according to data from the ADP Research Institute®? In addition, the most recent report from the Small Business Administration published in June 2015 showed that small businesses with up to 49 employees contributed the most to job growth in 2014 by generating 39 percent of net new jobs. This compares to 34 percent by firms with 50-499 employees and 27 percent by firms with 500 or more workers. It takes long hours, tremendous commitment, and incredible tenacity to...

Rita Mitjans, Chief Diversity & Corporate Social Responsibility Officer

ADP’s commitment to diversity is foundational to our talent strategy and one of the many things that makes ADP a great place to work.
