USA Today Highlights Workforce Vitality Report Data

In an article titled “Tight labor market giving more Americans career clout,” USA Today leverages recent ADP Research Institute data from our Workforce Vitality Report highlighting that the tightening labor market is creating an opportunity for job switchers to increase their wages. “About half a million U.S. workers left one job for another in the fourth quarter, up from 406,000 in the same period in 2015 and 365,000 two years ago, according to estimates by private payroll processor ADP. That trend largely has been reported by the Labor Department and reflects a more vibrant job market.

Things Your Company Should Consider as New Overtime Rules are Put on Hold

In May last year, the United States Department of Labor (DOL) released final regulations that modified certain provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Specifically, the final regulations increased the minimum salary required to be earned by an employee in order for that employee to be exempt from the FLSA overtime requirements. While these regulations are in flux, the FLSA is here to stay! No changes have made, or even proposed, that affect the need to properly classify employees into exempt and non-exempt categories, pay overtime wages to non-exempt employees working more than 40 hours in a workweek, and a host of other FLSA requirements. And that’s just at the federal level. States and municipalities increasingly are entering the field and creating their own wage and hour requirements.

Paid Leave is Picking Up Steam

Though not required by law, an increasing number of U.S. employers are starting to take matters into their own hands when it comes to paid parental leave benefits. In December, Fortune reported that American Express joined the ranks of U.S. companies like Google and Bank of America that are sweetening their parental leave and benefits policies. Amex will give employees 20 weeks of parental leave and offer benefits worth up to $35,000 for adoption and surrogacy events, as well as $35,000 for infertility treatment. If your company is planning to create or update a paid parental leave program there are several factors to consider. Sushma Tripathi, vice president of workforce planning and benefits consulting at ADP says it’s important to align talent to the corporate strategy, then align benefits.
