Sumitomo Electric Wiring Systems Turns to ADP for Open Enrollment and ACA Compliance Help

The main mission of Sumitomo Electric Wiring Systems, or SEWS, is to deliver innovative electrical distribution systems to the automotive industry. As an organization that prides itself on developing new technologies and understanding efficient design principles, the company realized it needed to automate its benefits administration process, and do away with paper forms. With 1,700 employees in the United States, Corporate Compensation and Benefits Administrator, Rhonda S. Gearlds was manually entering benefits information for hundreds of employees. To save time and reduce data entry errors, SEWS turned to ADP for help. “Benefits is often one of the most confusing choices employees have to make, so I was often inundated with employee questions during open enrollment,” said Gearlds. “Now with ADP, employees can go online and can see what they’re enrolled in, which family members are covered, and which elections they need to make. Before, employees were always asking questions such as ‘Will my flexible spending account roll over?’ Now, the system alerts them that an election decision needs to...

Revisions to EEO-1 Reporting: The Impact to Employers

Revisions to EEO-1 Reporting: The Impact to Employers

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has issued major revisions to EEO-1 reporting that require the addition of employee pay data, which must be broken out by race, gender, and ethnicity – with significant implications for employers. From an administrative perspective, the new EEO-1 report requires the addition of Form W-2 gross wages from the payroll system, as well as work hours for employees. From a strategic and compliance perspective, EEO-1 mandated pay data may raise the awareness and visibility of potential payequity issues for an employer. In light of the new rule, some employers may wish to review their current hiring, job evaluation, and pay practices to ensure that they are compliant and defensible.

Post-Election Possibilities: Changes to HR and Tax Compliance You May See

Many employers are still grappling with new compliance challenges enacted in recent years, and unresolved legislative priorities from past years may be brought to the forefront in the critical first year of the new administration. That begs the question – What should employers expect in this post-election environment? Which policy issues are likely to be considered and how might they affect employers? We reached out to ADP experts Ellen Feeney, Vice President and Counsel – Global Compliance, and Pete Isberg, Vice President, Government Relations, to ask them what they think employers can expect in the upcoming year. The Affordable Care Act was discussed at length in this past election cycle. What are some possible changes employers can expect? Ellen: While President-elect Trump campaigned on the promise that he’d repeal and replace the ACA, his stance has shifted somewhat post-election, and he seems open to the possibility of keeping some parts of the law. At this point, the ACA is tightly woven into our health care system as twenty million...

FLSA Overtime Rules Temporarily Blocked

FLSA Overtime Rules Temporarily Blocked

FLSA Changes No Longer Effective December 1, 2016 On November 22, 2016, a federal judge in Texas issued an injunction and temporarily blocked changes to the regulations governing the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) set to go into effect on December 1, 2016. The court’s action stops the overtime rule changes from going into effect nationwide while the court decides the case. So what does this mean for you? Many employers have spent months preparing for the FLSA changes, identifying workers affected by the final regulations, determining whether to increase their salaries to comply or reclassify them as nonexempt employees, and communicating those changes to their employees.
