Partnering with a more human resource

ADP Blogs: Another More Human Resource

by Andy Hilton, VP Communications, Content and Brand We spent the last year creating and building our ADP blogs, publishing new articles every day. With hundreds of posts, the blogs are becoming a great resource to learn about the problems organizations are trying to solve and the upcoming issues they want to understand. The point of our blogs is to become a reliable resource for anyone wanting to explore what is going on with business, people, technology, and work. We hope to start a bigger conversation and connect with people in ways that are more about you and less about us. Here is a little about each of ADP’s blogs. Thrive is for small to medium sized business owners. Thrive focuses on practical information and advice for managing people, maximizing profits, handling operations, marketing and sales, protecting your business, and overall business strategies. Recent articles discuss the right time to launch a business, whether to move to a new location, and how getting involved in your community can also...

ACA Remains the Law of the Land: What Does This Mean for Employers?

“Obamacare is the law of the land…. We’re going to be living with Obamacare for the foreseeable future.” – Representative Paul Ryan, Speaker of the House, March 24, 2017 Speaker of the House Paul Ryan pulled the American Health Care Act (AHCA) from consideration by the House of Representatives, which means the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was not amended and remains the law of the land for the foreseeable future. At this time, there does not appear to be a clear pathway to reviving ACA repeal and replace legislation. But what does this mean for employers? For employers, this means all ACA mandates, requirements, and potential penalties remain in effect at this time. For example, the employer “shared responsibility” mandate and related employer reporting requirements have not been amended and remain in place and enforceable by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). For more insight on the implications of this latest action and what could come next, read Vic Saliterman’s latest article on Spark, Health Care Reform: The Affordable Care...

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...

Are Employers Ready to Tackle Pay Equity?

Ahu Yildirmaz, Ph.D. Vice President, ADP Research Institute

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has expanded its EEO-1 form to require many employers to submit more information and provide greater transparency around their pay practices. Yet, according to ADP’s 2016 Compliance Confidence Study[1], almost half of organizations responded that they weren’t confident in their ability to comply with the EEOC rule by the 2018 deadline. So, if they’re not ready, where should employers start? Examining their payroll and HR data is key. The data collection needed to comply with the EEOC rules can help organizations uncover and analyze inequitable pay practices, which oftentimes exist without their knowledge. In our latest whitepaper on pay equity, ADP outlines a few steps employers can take when getting started with data: Get familiar with the latest EEOC compliance rules – and how reporting needs to change: Starting in March 2018, employers with at least 100 employees (or those with 50 or more employees that have a federal government contract) will be required to submit an expanded EEO-1 form including additional information...

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...
