New ADP Service to Help With Wage and Hour Compliance Issues

Time Clock

ADP added a “Compliance on Demand” service to its product lineup in a bid to simplify the management of wage and hour regulation compliance. The offering is meant to help employers keep abreast of changing regulations at all levels of government.

ADP Division Vice President and General Manager David Palmieri said the company saw a need for “more than technology” when it comes to managing compliance. Employers “need a partner with expertise that can be leveraged to design a solution for the unique complexities of their business.” With the regulatory landscape constantly changing, he added, “maintaining a culture of compliance can be very challenging.” The goal of Compliance on Demand is to “save business leaders and HR professionals time and allow them to more easily respond to these changes.”

Compliance on Demand includes a library of federal, state and local materials, a help desk and a community forum for crowd-sourcing opinions and best practices. ADP has incorporated content from law firm Littler Mendelson and offers access to Littler compliance experts through the help desk.

“Our combined services will expedite access to compliance information and allow clients to proactively collaborate with their legal and HR teams,” said Scott Forman, a shareholder at Littler.

Compliance on Demand includes:

  • A database of ADP content including legislative updates, webinars, toolkits, posters, sample policies, forms, articles, videos and other educational materials.
  • Access to an inventory of legislative and regulatory developments, as well as Littler’s database of multi-state surveys that cover more than 60 employment topics.
  • An online forum where ADP workforce management clients can post questions and engage with industry colleagues who face similar compliance issues and questions.
  • A compliance help desk for consultation, either as-needed or by appointment.

The web site Accounting Today saw Compliance on Demand as an example of software companies working to meet the needs of accountants who offer payroll services to their clients. Already the company offers several services, such as Accountant Connect, designed to streamline how CPAs work with their clients.  

Earning Meet Expectations

Compliance on Demand’s launch came a day after ADP announced its first-quarter earnings results. The company as revenues increased 6 percent to $3.5 billion during the period. Net earnings rose 15 percent to $582 million.

CFO Kathleen Winters said the company was “pleased” with the results, which were in line with its expectations. “We are continuing to execute well on our initiatives aimed at streamlining the organization while concurrently improving client satisfaction,” she said.
