New legislation can create complex rules, weighty administrative responsibilities and allows zero margin for error: When it comes to complying with employment legislation, the burden for U.S. businesses — both large and small — is substantial.

Take the recent coronavirus relief legislation, for example. The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act allows employers to elect to delay payment of their federal payroll taxes, and delay the deposit and payment of their Social Security taxes, effective immediately, through Dec. 31, 2020. Another, the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), gives American businesses with fewer than 500 employees funds to provide COVID-19-impacted staff with paid leave, among other provisions. ​Both are now federal law and earlier this year, organizations had to adjust quickly  to avoid costly fines.

What role can an informed HCM partner play in navigating these unexpected challenges?

In the second half of this two-part episode of HR Break Room®, host Caleb Masters is rejoined by Boudreau and Blaiklock to discuss:

  • why it’s important to select a partner who can quickly help your organization develop compliance tools for emerging legislation like FFCRA and the CARES Act through safe and secure record keeping
  • the value of working with a partner who takes client feedback into consideration when developing tools and best practices
  • how to leverage the data provided by technology to get buy-in for employee usage from your C-suite
