Affordable Care Act

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires employers with 50 or more full time equivalent employees to offer minimal essential health coverage at an affordable rate to all full-time employees (30+ hours) or face a penalty.

How Paycor Helps

Paycor’s best-in-class ACA solution has helped thousands of clients successfully navigate ACA requirements—one of the most complex compliance regulations to date. Easily access ACA reports including Affordability, Applicable Large Employer, and ACA Employee Eligibility. Seamlessly track and manage employee hours to determine which employees are eligible for benefits.

Employee Retirement Income Security Act

ERISA or the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) of 1974 protects employees from retirement fund mismanagement and abuse. ERISA also covers non-retirement accounts, which include group health plans for employee benefits such as medical, dental, vision, life/AD&D, short-term and long-term disability, flexible spending accounts, and health reimbursement arrangements. Any employer that offers a retirement plan or group-sponsored healthcare plan must follow ERISA requirements unless an exemption applies.

How Paycor Helps

With notifications, alerts, and reminders, our software eliminates manual recordkeeping and duplicate entry. Paycor Benefits Advisor drives efficiencies by offering customized reporting for your benefits compliance needs.

Family Medical Leave Act

The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) is a federal law that allows eligible employees to take up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave in any given 12-month period for certain medical and family reasons without fear of losing their job. Signed into law in 1993, the FMLA is designed to help employees balance their work and family responsibilities while promoting equal employment opportunity for men and women.

How Paycor Helps

Record FMLA hours and attach any relevant documentation, such as notes from health care providers and communication with employee. Manage required FMLA policies, posters, and notices to make employees aware of their options. Paycor’s HR and timekeeping solutions can alert you to absences that may qualify for FMLA leave.

Workers’ Compensation

Workers’ compensation is insurance that provides medical expenses, lost wages and rehabilitation costs to employees who are injured or become ill at work. It also pays death benefits to the families of employees killed on the job. Failure by employers to obtain workers’ compensation coverage may result in fines, possible imprisonment and losing the right to operate their business in the state.

How Paycor Helps

Eliminate up-front costs and outdated payment processing. Paycor’s pay-as-you-go workers’ compensation solution ensures accurate premium payments so you can improve budgeting, avoid down payments, and eliminate surprises at year-end.
