Workforce Quotes ADP Expert About ACA Compliance

Workforce Quotes ADP Expert About ACA Compliance

Workforce has posted an article titled “Despite Repeal Efforts, ACA Compliance Moves Forward” that extensively quotes ADP SME Ellen Feeney, vice president, Counsel, Global Compliance, on the need for compliance with the current provisions of the Affordable Care Act while the incoming administration evaluates its next steps regarding the law. “Given the Republican sweep in the White House, Senate and House of Representatives, the new makeup of our government represents a potentially significant change not just for ACA, but for tax policy, Fair Labor Standards Act, pay equity and more,” [Feeney] said in an email. “First and foremost, it’s important to focus on facts vs. speculation. Change won’t happen overnight. The Affordable Care Act is the law, and will remain so until it’s not. Ten million people are getting subsidies through the marketplaces and 20 million total are insured through the public marketplaces. A wholesale replacement of the Affordable Care Act would require congressional action and would take time.” Read the entire article at Workforce. Share this:Click to email...

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...

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...

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.
