Paycor’s Latest Web Summit Unearths Trends in HR and Compliance

Registrants from 46 states learned about DOL overtime changes, "Ban the Box" and more

CINCINNATI, OHIO (PRWEB) APRIL 18, 2016

Paycor held a free Web Summit in March that educated thousands of HR practitioners on timely topics of interest in HR and compliance, revealing the most pressing issues for employers.

“Participation in our most recent Web Summit shows the appetite for information on the changing dynamics of HR practice,” said Jennifer Bellin, Paycor’s vice president of marketing. “Through our frequent Web Summits and webinars, Paycor continually prepares employers through education and insights on the challenges they face.”

Web Summit registrants came from 46 U.S. states, and just under 50 percent were current Paycor clients. The most popular webinars in terms of registrants and active discussion from the Summit reflect the current hot topics in HR and compliance:

* DOL Overtime Changes: Changes to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)’s overtime exemption thresholds for white collar and highly compensated employees are looming, with the latest estimates calling for new regulations as early as July. Employers should be tracking their employees’ hours now to know exactly how many hours their employees are working.

* Criminal Checks: “Ban the Box” laws are now effective in 18 states, and other states and local municipalities (such as the city of Austin, TX) continue to ban the criminal record question on job applications. Companies should eliminate this question from their job applications to ensure ongoing compliance.

* Mobile Recruiting: Converting today’s candidates to hires necessitates a pivot to mobile recruiting for employers big and small. A recent survey by Kelton revealed that 70% of active applicants would prefer to apply for jobs via mobile, but the majority of employers are not equipped to handle mobile applicants.

* ACA Compliance: Employers will report on their compliance to the Internal Revenue Service by May 31 or June 30. The work continues to ensure compliance for 2016, and to keep track of the ongoing changes ahead through the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (PATH) Act.

You also have to work to improve employee engagement and retention across the company. Unfortunately, those tedious administrative tasks can get in the way of your ability to focus on big picture strategies or connecting with employees in a more meaningful way. But there’s a light at the end of the tunnel (and, no, it’s not an oncoming train!)....
