New House Bill Could Make WOTC Permanent

On August 11, 2017, House of Representatives (H.R.) Bill 3652 was introduced and, if passed, would amend the Internal Revenue Code to make the Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) permanent for qualified new hires who begin work after December 31, 2019.

ADP celebrates National Payroll Week!

For 22 years now, National Payroll Week has accompanied Labor Day to celebrate over 150 million hard-working Americans and the payroll professionals who get them their wages. Also for 22 years, ADP is proud to be the sole Diamond Sponsor of National Payroll Week. Founded by the American Payroll Association (APA), the week has unswervingly focused on one goal: to help workers better understand and manage their pay. Eight percent of workers reported last year that they were not certain if their paychecks were the correct amount. Another 22 percent were only somewhat certain. And payroll professionals’ work goes beyond wages too. American workers’ social security, Medicare, child support and other benefits are tied into the same system. The APA is dedicated to ensuring workers understand their whole paycheck, including the impact of different benefits and withholdings, and ADP is committed to help. This September 4-8, 2017, local APA will host presentations for schools, civic groups and others to spread understanding of the payroll system and its benefits. ADP...

City of Waycross: All-in-One Solution and Data Analytics from ADP Solve Efficiency Issues  

The city of Waycross, located in Ware County, Georgia, employs approximately 205 employees across many diverse departments, including public safety, engineering, public works and even a local television station. As a governmental unit, the city needs to be cost efficient in the way in which it operates and stays compliant with applicable federal, state and local regulation. Trinija Martin, Director of HR & Risk Management and Public Information Officer for the City of Waycross started working with the city in 2015 and found that the systems in place at the time were limited and outdated, requiring plenty of manual processes to complete routine tasks. Of all the prospective partners that Martin looked at, ADP impressed her the most. “ADP was the only company at that time that had a single-source solution that wasn’t backed by any other solution,” Martin said. “It truly was a total ADP solution. Some of the other vendors that I looked at partnered with ADP to deliver what I wanted, but they were still separate...

Overtime Rules: Where Are They Now?

May 2016, the Department of Labor (DOL) released a Final Rule that would have increased the minimum salary required to be exempt from overtime under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). However, just before the rule was to take effect, a federal judge temporarily blocked the DOL from implementing the rule. Here is an overview and update on the status of the Final Rule: Background: The FLSA requires employers to pay most employees at least the federal minimum wage for each hour worked and overtime pay for all hours worked over 40 in a workweek. The FLSA allows for exemptions for certain employees who work in administrative, professional, executive, highly compensated, outside sales, and computer professional jobs. These employees are known as “exempt” employees. To be considered “exempt,” these employees must generally satisfy three tests: Salary-level test: Employees must earn a weekly salary that meets the minimum requirements. Salary-basis test: With very limited exceptions, the employer must pay employees their full salary in any week they perform work, regardless...
