Federal, state and local jurisdictions continue to enact new laws that will shape the way employers hire, pay and engage their employees. Is your organization ready for the latest developments in workplace compliance?

To give one timely example, the new 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 December 31, 2020. Another, the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), gives American businesses with fewer than 500 employees funds to provide COVID-19-impacted employees with paid leave, among other provisions. Both are now federal law.

Meanwhile, sexual harassment continues to impact businesses. In the U.S., according to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, 2018 saw approximately 40 million Google searches of the term while 2019 brought more than 12,500 allegations, worth $68 million in settlements.

Then there is the rising popularity of predictive scheduling laws, designed to allow the availability of employees to better align with their organizations’ needs.

Another constantly changing area of compliance is paid sick and paid family leave. As the federal government and several major cities have passed new sick leave requirements, it’s a topic where relevance will only increase.

In this webcast, Paycom’s director of government and community affairs AJ Griffin will discuss:

  • How the new FFCRA and CARES Act may impact your business
  • Paid sick and paid family leave programs
  • Expanded sexual harassment protections
  • Predictive scheduling
  • Overtime exemption rules
  • How to ensure your organization remains compliant
