Relief! Lessen Your Wage Garnishment Headaches with ADP’s Newly Enhanced Wage Garnishment Solution

Relief! Lessen Your Wage Garnishment Headaches with ADP’s Newly Enhanced Wage Garnishment Solution

As companies grow in size, so does their potential liability for wage garnishments. According to ADP® 2017 data, one in 14 U.S. employees has a wage garnishment and 12 percent of those have more than one type. Further, the same data shows that companies with 5,000 or more employees have the highest garnishment rate at 8.6 percent. For employers, wage garnishment — withholding wages from an employee’s earnings to satisfy a debt — means navigating complicated state and federal laws that can make compliance particularly challenging. Failure to calculate and withhold the appropriate amount of funds, submit required responses and notifications, or hold or remit payments to the proper parties can expose companies to litigation, fines and employee frustration. Now, ADP has enhanced its full-service Wage Garnishments solution to further help employers lessen their compliance burden and simplify the end-to-end process of wage garnishments on a day-to-day basis. The ADP SmartCompliance Wage Garnishment technology helps to mitigate risk, improve productivity and ease the employee experience. This outsourced solution is...

Ditching Paper For Plastic? Consider These Five Steps to Get Started

By Normia Arteaga, Director Wage Payments Solutions & Marketing, ADP Given the growing popularity of electronic payroll, many companies are evaluating the potential cost savings and flexibility that methods such as direct deposit and payroll cards might deliver to their workforce. These electronic pay methods can reduce the cost of printing and shipping checks and help limit liabilities caused by lost or stolen checks and fraud. For payroll administrators, increasing their electronic pay adoption can also mean a huge time savings because they no longer have to chase down and reconcile lost or stolen checks. What’s the benefit for employees? According to a Visa® and ADP® study on the ALINE Card by ADP® ¹, 93 percent of payroll card holders said one of the most valuable reasons for having a payroll card was Visa acceptance for purchases and bill payment. Additionally, 92 percent said they valued having immediate access to their pay and 90 percent said they valued the 24/7 account management ability. With payroll cards, employees don’t need...

How often have you been under pressure to compile vital information for your human resources (HR) or finance leader so your company can comply with a myriad of Human Capital Management (HCM) laws?

Are you taking full advantage of this tax credit opportunity?

Are you taking full advantage of this tax credit opportunity?

Among the many incentives the federal government provides to U.S. businesses, the research and development (“R&D”) tax credit remains largely overlooked and underutilized, meaning companies may be missing out on claiming up to thousands of dollars of credits! And probably for good reason. The phrases “research and development” and “R&D” usually bring images of lab coats and microscopes to mind. However, the federal R&D tax credit laws define “research and development” so that it can take on a much broader meaning. In fact, you may now be able to recover a significant return on your investments that involve the improvement or development of manufacturing processes, software, products, techniques, and formulas. Unfortunately, many of these credits go unclaimed because companies are unaware they may now qualify for the credit, regardless of profitability, size, or industry – even though the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (“PATH”) Act of 2015 enables more companies to benefit in more ways than ever from this tax credit. The PATH Act expanded the applicability of the...
