Increasing WOTC Screening Compliance with an Integrated Solution from ADP SmartCompliance

As Talent Management Compliance Manager for United Supermarkets, Marka Branson oversees many of the company’s compliance programs, including pre-employment screenings such as background checks, drug screening, I-9 compliance, unemployment claims and Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) for 17,000 employees in 96 stores, a manufacturing plant and two distribution centers. Marka recently spoke to us about her experience with ADP® and her relationship with her dedicated account manager, Lyn, who, along with ADP’s leading-edge technology for WOTC screening, helped remove the burden of manually screening applicants for WOTC, which resulted in an improvement in the financial benefits the company receives. Here’s what Marka had to say: Moving From Paper and Spreadsheets to Automated WOTC Screening Before we automated applicant screening for WOTC, we were using a paper packet.

The Latest on Tax Reform and Maintaining Compliance

The Latest on Tax Reform and Maintaining Compliance

On average, almost every U.S. employer can expect to receive at least one IRS penalty assessment for errors in employment tax administration, every year. In FY2016, the IRS issued more than 5.8 million penalty notices for employment tax, totaling over $6 billion, or roughly $1,000 per notice. Maintaining employment tax compliance can be a risky business. Businesses across the U.S. are struggling to understand how the recent Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (P.L. 115-97) affect them. Many provisions are immediately effective, although the IRS may not issue guidance for months. With Federal tax reform becoming law and expected to spark similar legislation in more than forty states, it’s difficult enough to just keep up with the changes, let alone comply with them. And with the recent increase in IRS information reporting penalties for incorrect information – which has more than doubled1 – can you afford to make any mistakes? Helping you stay compliant is one of our highest priorities. In fact, ADP makes over 1,000 programming changes annually to...

I sent her the information needed to have the ALINE Cards prepared for each new location – employee name, address, ID, social security number and date of birth.
