New Whitepaper: 2017 HR & Compliance Trends You Need to Know

As we turn the calendar to 2017, businesses are faced with more uncertainty than in years past. A new administration will take office on January 20, which could signal future compliance changes and new government regulations. What those changes may be and how they will affect businesses is still to be determined, but Paycor is keeping a close eye on any developments that will impact compliance, the HR industry and taxes for our clients.

We’ve assembled our 2017 whitepaper, “What Business Leaders Need to Know Now”, focusing on four critical areas that will play a role in HR management decisions throughout the year and beyond. Here’s a primer of what you need to know along with a link to read the whitepaper.

Compliance: Be Safe, Not Sorry

What will compliance look like in 2017? It’s still too early to tell, but there’s a good chance regulations could become more complex as laws are revised and changes take shape. Whatever the future holds, compliance will be top of mind and regulations like the Affordable Care Act, Department of Labor overtime regulations, Equal Employment Opportunity and more will likely be impacted. Stay tuned to our resource center for the latest information to keep your organization compliant.
