Tackling ACA Compliance Allows Barton Malow to Focus on Strategic Growth Initiatives

Tackling ACA Compliance Allows Barton Malow to Focus on Strategic Growth Initiatives

The Challenge A Growing Company Deals with ACA Compliance Like many in her position, Sarah Bertolini, total compensation manager for Barton Malow Company, struggled with the new compliance demands brought about by the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Dealing with the ACA’s complex reporting requirements and knowing what to do, and when to do it, to mitigate compliance risks and penalties could easily have been an overwhelming full-time job, requiring regulatory expertise and hours that Bertolini and other in-house resources simply didn’t have. Additionally, Barton Malow, a top-performing North American contractor that specializes in large-scale commercial construction, such as higher education, automotive and health care, had almost doubled its employee base in three years, making ACA compliance even more complicated.

Overtime Rules: Where Are They Now?

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.

Pay Equity: HR Compliance Trend to Watch

Pay Equity: HR Compliance Trend to Watch

Several jurisdictions are expanding and clarifying their laws prohibiting gender-based discrimination in pay, including restricting employers from making inquiries into an applicant’s pay history during the hiring process. This is because a candidate’s pay history may reflect discriminatory pay practices of a previous employer, which then could result in lower wages in the new job. While these laws differ among jurisdictions, they typically prohibit employers from seeking compensation history from an applicant or his/her current or former employer. Generally, employers are also prohibited from screening applicants based on their pay histories, including by requiring that an applicant’s prior compensation satisfy minimum or maximum criteria. The following jurisdictions have enacted these types of restrictions: Oregon (effective October 6, 2017) New York City, NY (effective October 31, 2017) Delaware (effective December 14, 2017) Massachusetts (effective July 1, 2018) San Francisco (effective July 1, 2018) Philadelphia (blocked due to pending litigation – watch for developments) If you are covered by one of these laws, remove salary history questions from application forms and...
