However, as the government works to fully restore the electric grid, roads, and other infrastructure, more help is on the way for employers in Puerto Rico starting in early June – in the form of an Employee Retention Credit (ERC) that will be paid out as a direct-cash grant.

As Payroll Lead for Vermeer Corporation, Debby Haning is responsible for payroll and tax administration for 2,500 manufacturing employees in three U.S. locations. The 70-year-old company also has locations in the Netherlands, Brazil and China. We recently spoke to Debby about the challenges she faced and how ADP helped with its ADP SmartCompliance® Employment Tax solution that is integrated with their Workday Human Capital Management system.
