While national companies like ADP and Paychex have a strong understanding of the federal wage and hour laws, they may not be well-versed with the state and local guidelines. With over 11,000 different state and local jurisdictions, it's impossible for them to cover all that ground.
We aren't a big national company whose support team has no idea about specific state and local laws. Take minimum wage in NY, for example. Many states have just one minimum wage, but NY has multiple minimum wage rates depending upon your location, industry, and company size. You need experts by your side because getting this wrong and paying employees below minimum wage can land you in jail.
Just last year alone, there were more than 20 new state and local employment regulations in NY alone. Part of our role is to keep up with these ever-changing employment laws for you so that you're never surprised and caught off guard. We believe it's our job to notify you.
HR and Payroll are more complicated now than ever before, and every year it becomes even more challenging. Business owners are investing 25% more in HR compliance because they are worried about all the new regulations, enforcement activities, personal liability, and the risk of being sued by their employees.
