Recent changes to federal, state and local laws on overtime rules, minimum wage and paid sick leave have made paying employees even more complicated and have increased the risk of noncompliance fines for employers.
There are many ways you can earn revenue while providing a solution to your clients:
- Processing payroll for your clients using a comprehensive solution that takes responsibility for payroll tax filing can improve client
engagement while helping to minimize your risk.
- Participating in a shared revenue program by outsourcing clients’ payroll to a provider with easy access to payroll data that interfaces
to your GL.
- Valuing and exiting the payroll business while at its peak through a client-based acquisition program can provide you resources.
The golden state is known for having some of the most complicated employment laws in the nation. Even if you don’t have business locations in California, you may still be subject to state requirements if you have employees who perform work there. Add in recent federal changes to the overtime rules and it’s no wonder that a California employer’s goal of keeping up with their compliance responsibilities feels like a dream.
In this one-hour presentation, ADP will answer common questions asked of their HR Businesses Advisors and cover:
- State of California and local wage & hour laws
- Required new hire paperwork and other recordkeeping requirements
- State of California and local paid sick leave laws
- Paid family leave and other leave of absence requirements
- Nondiscrimination laws, equal pay requirements, and mandatory anti-harassment training
- DOL’s changes to exemption criteria and how it impacts California employers
Your clients' forms 1095-C are likely filed and will now be used by the IRS to assess penalties for failing to comply with the Employer Shared Responsibility mandate of the ACA. That’s one MAJOR penalty opportunity scratched off the list. But before your clients see that assessment, there is a trigger happening now that can alert your clients to a potential problem: a Marketplace Notice. Early intervention is key when it comes to Marketplace Notices. Tap into our expertise to help ensure your clients are in the best shape possible for future reporting and regulatory updates that may come about along the way.
Gain a firm understanding of the following questions:
- What is a Marketplace Notice?
- Who is sending out these notices?
- When will your clients receive them?
- How should they respond?
- What is the potential impact to their employees?
- What the potential IRS penalties for failure to file and for Employer Shared Responsibility?
- What is the latest IRS information on penalty relief?
- What are some tips for responding to penalty notices/documentation to retain?
- How is 2015 different than 2016?
In May 2016, the Department of Labor (DOL) published new rules that will increase the minimum salary requirement to be considered exempt from overtime under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The DOL estimates that approximately 4.2 million workers will be impacted. While the final rules don’t take effect until December 1, 2016, employers should act now to assess the impact on their business and develop a plan for compliance.
