The Clock Is Ticking… New Overtime Rules Are Almost Here

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.

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...

SHRM Features ADP’s Expertise on New Overtime Rules

With new overtime rules set to take effect on December 1st, SHRM interviewed two ADP thought leaders to gather insights to help HR leaders prepare. In an article titled “It Takes Two: Exempt Employee Must Meet Both Salary and Duties Tests, ADP’s Sushma Tripathi addresses some misperceptions around the changes to the overtime rules. For example, meeting the salary threshold doesn’t automatically make an employee exempt from overtime pay; employees must earn at least the standard salary threshold of $47,476 and fulfill one of the exemptions in the standard duties test. In another article titled, “Overtime Rule Puts Focus On Incentive Pay,” ADP’s Meg Ferrero discusses how the new rule amends the salary basis test to allow employers to use nondiscretionary bonuses and incentive payments (including commissions) to satisfy up to 10 percent of the new standard salary threshold. Head over to SHRM to read both stories in their...
