FLSA Overtime Rules Temporarily Blocked

FLSA Changes No Longer Effective December 1, 2016 On November 22, 2016, a federal judge in Texas issued an injunction and temporarily blocked changes to the regulations governing the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) set to go into effect on December 1, 2016. The court’s action stops the overtime rule changes from going into effect nationwide while the court decides the case. So what does this mean for you? Many employers have spent months preparing for the FLSA changes, identifying workers affected by the final regulations, determining whether to increase their salaries to comply or reclassify them as nonexempt employees, and communicating those changes to their employees.

Payroll: The Accountant’s Key to Unlocking Stronger Client Relationships

By Chris Rush, Division Vice President of Strategy and Business Development for ADP’s Small Business Services Division To many clients or small business owners, payroll can seem like yet another piece of an already complicated puzzle. Recent changes to federal, state and local laws on overtime rules, minimum wage and paid sick leave have made this task even more complicated, increasing the risk of noncompliance fines for employers. As they adapt to regulatory changes and anticipate more in the future, small businesses are looking to their accountants to manage the payroll process. And that’s good news. In fact, according to a recent ADP white paper, 43 percent of accounting professionals indicate that payroll is one of the most profitable segments of their business. By adding payroll services to an existing suite of accounting options, accountants can meet the demand of clients who want to better understand their payroll and how they can streamline it. At the same time, payroll can open up new opportunities, allowing accountants to increase the...

To Review or Not to Review. That is Not the Question.

By Susan Hanold, VP of Talent Management and Strategic Advisory Services, and Sam Finley, VP of Talent Management Client Services, for ADP Certainly, Shakespeare’s Hamlet was contemplating a question far more dire than performance reviews. But the black-and-white nature of his question is still an apt way to depict the current debate in many corporations about the value, frequency and validity of the process used to rate, rank and reward employees. The issue, in our view, is not black and white. It’s most definitely grey. In fact, based on dozens of conversations with ADP® clients, we’d like to suggest that the question is not whether or not to review employees. (That’s an individual decision each company must make based on its unique corporate culture.) The question is: How will your organization revise its talent management strategy to accommodate the needs of today’s multi-faceted workforce? HR leaders are keen to identify a “better,” more effective way to conduct performance reviews while preserving an ability to cultivate and retain their best...

New overtime rules are about to take effect on December 1. At this point in the game, most companies understand that the salary threshold for exempt workers has more than doubled to $47,476, and they’ve decided whether to reclassify employees as nonexempt, increase salaries of impacted employees, or redistribute work and redefine people’s roles. The biggest challenge remaining: Communicating the changes to employees. In an article titled, “New Overtime Rules Are Almost Here: Don’t Overlook These 6 Key Areas,” ADP’s Sushma Tripathi shared with SHRM six key areas that may be easy to overlook.

Small Biz is Everybody’s Biz

All too often, we take local shops in our communities for granted and only realize their value when one day we notice they’ve closed their doors. Were it not for the dedication, passion and commitment of today’s small business owners and their families, the warm feel of downtown areas would be lost forever. Small businesses also create a significant number of job opportunities and boost the economy of their communities. Did you know that small business owners alone added more than 680,000 jobs to the U.S. economy so far this year, according to data from the ADP Research Institute®? In addition, the most recent report from the Small Business Administration published in June 2015 showed that small businesses with up to 49 employees contributed the most to job growth in 2014 by generating 39 percent of net new jobs. This compares to 34 percent by firms with 50-499 employees and 27 percent by firms with 500 or more workers. It takes long hours, tremendous commitment, and incredible tenacity to...

Revisions to EEO-1 Reporting: What’s the Impact to Employers?

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has issued major revisions to EEO-1 reporting that require the addition of employee pay data, which must be broken out by race, gender, and ethnicity – with significant implications for employers. From an administrative perspective, the new EEO-1 report requires the addition of Form W-2 gross wages from the payroll system, as well as work hours for employees. From a strategic and compliance perspective, EEO-1 mandated pay data may raise the awareness and visibility of potential pay equity issues for an employer. In light of the new rule, some employers may wish to review their current hiring, job evaluation, and pay practices to ensure that they are compliant and defensible. Join our event on November 21st with other HR execs like yourself and get critical insights into the EEO-1 revisions, along with potential strategies employers can use to prepare for the new law. During this webcast, you will learn about: Detailed overview of EEO-1 reporting changes Answers to employers’ frequently asked questions Summary...

Post-Election Compliance Outlook

On January 20, 2017, Donald Trump will be sworn in on the steps of the U.S. Capitol. With the Republican sweep of the White House, Senate and House some laws and regulations are likely to change. That begs the question – so what does this mean for you and your company? ADP has been serving employers of every size and from every industry, over the course of a dozen presidential administrations. When we signed up our first payroll client in 1949, President Harry Truman was in the White House. An important part of his daily commitment and lasting legacy was embodied in a small sign he kept at his desk that read simply: “The buck stops here.” Just as Harry Truman felt a strong pride and commitment serving as our country’s chief elected leader, ADP feels an enormous pride and responsibility as a resource and partner that American employers can trust for our understanding of complex compliance, financial, and strategic issues concerning workforce management. More than ever, employers will...
