Paycor's ACA Care team has been working diligently with more than 5,900 companies to alleviate the stress and burden of ACA filing. Here’s what our client Holly Mountain Enterprises had to say about their experience:

“I just have to share my experience with my ACA specialist. Trust me, this stuff has been scaring me to death. I just got off the phone from a scheduled ACA training session. When we started the call, I was nervous as could be, because it is scary and my mistakes can cost the company money. Before we were halfway through the call, I could feel the tension leaving. My specialist showed me what I needed to do, explained what I was doing wrong, and complimented me on what I was doing right. Thank you, Paycor!”

States with Salary History Bans

Requesting job applicants’ salary histories has been a pretty common practice for employers over the years. Recruiters and hiring managers often use this knowledge to exclude people from the candidate pool, either because the applicant is “too expensive” or their previous salary is so low, hiring managers think the person is poorly qualified or inexperienced.Businesses have also used previous salary information to calculate new hire compensation—a process that can perpetuate pay disparity between women and men.
