ADP Byline on Employee Benefits Advisor: Easing Concerns of ‘Unbanked’ Employees

ADP Byline on Employee Benefits Advisor: Easing Concerns of ‘Unbanked’ Employees

Employee Benefit Adviser has posted a byline article from ADP SME Aldor H. Delp titled, “Easing Concerns of Unbanked Employees,” which explores the challenges to HR and payroll leaders to accommodate the needs of unbanked and underbanked employees. In this article, Delp points out that nearly 16 million consumers in the U.S. are “unbanked,” which means no one in the household where they live has a checking or savings account, according to a recent Forbes article. Add to that, there are more than 50 million U.S. adults, according to Forbes, who are considered “underbanked” because banking services may be complex, expensive, or difficult to access for them, or a bank account may be too expensive to open. Benefits and payroll leaders trying to accommodate the needs of these employees can experience a real challenge. One solution is a payroll card, which can provide a tremendous amount of flexibility to unbanked and underbanked employees and help employers more efficiently and securely pay them.

Pay Equity: HR Compliance Trend to Watch

Pay Equity: HR Compliance Trend to Watch

Several jurisdictions are expanding and clarifying their laws prohibiting gender-based discrimination in pay, including restricting employers from making inquiries into an applicant’s pay history during the hiring process. This is because a candidate’s pay history may reflect discriminatory pay practices of a previous employer, which then could result in lower wages in the new job. While these laws differ among jurisdictions, they typically prohibit employers from seeking compensation history from an applicant or his/her current or former employer. Generally, employers are also prohibited from screening applicants based on their pay histories, including by requiring that an applicant’s prior compensation satisfy minimum or maximum criteria. The following jurisdictions have enacted these types of restrictions: Oregon (effective October 6, 2017) New York City, NY (effective October 31, 2017) Delaware (effective December 14, 2017) Massachusetts (effective July 1, 2018) San Francisco (effective July 1, 2018) Philadelphia (blocked due to pending litigation – watch for developments) If you are covered by one of these laws, remove salary history questions from application forms and...

The Quest for Workforce Insight: Become a Superhero through Workforce Analytics

The Quest for Workforce Insight: Become a Superhero through Workforce Analytics

We’ve all heard of Big Data, but leveraging and finding value in it is no small task. Today, technology uses Big Data to learn our patterns and make recommendations on everything from where to shop to the best route to take home. Your smart phone has learned that you and many people “like you” travel home at 5 p.m. every day so it makes recommendations on the shortest route as soon as you approach your car. Similarly, with advances in technology, organizations are getting smarter about collecting, storing and cleaning their data to help drive better informed business decisions. However, the value internal data can provide is limited unless companies also can access external data to provide context and a wider lens to help suggest what is to come. Think about it: What good is tons of internal information if business leaders can’t compare it against industry benchmarks to see how they measure up, and analyze it to identify patterns and take action? Find out in this article by...
