In the healthcare industry, organizations must define a range of HR policies and procedures to ensure their businesses are compliant with federal, state, and local laws and regulations. At SNF Payroll, we offer a cloud-based HR platform where all employee files are organized. Human resources departments do more than oversee an organization’s employees. They play a key role in meeting company objectives while ensuring hiring, employee retention, and development practices follow clearly defined rules and goals.
Companies can pay a hefty price for non-compliance. Having a centralized payroll system to rely on can avoid compliance issues, which is important because:
SNF Payroll includes a complete HR Resource Center and Human Capital Management system. Following laws isn’t enough. Your organization must document every activity. From recruiting and onboarding to offering health insurance and other employment benefits, to managing the payroll process, it is critical to stay compliant.
Payroll compliance is more important than ever before because so many laws are in place. These include minimum wage and overtime laws, as well as anti-discrimination laws related to hiring, paying, training, and promoting employees. Important laws to consider include the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which identify protected classes and prohibit any type of discrimination.
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) includes classifications that designate employees as exempt and non-exempt. It requires non-exempt employees to be paid at least minimum wage. They must also be compensated a specific overtime rate for work performed beyond 40 hours in a week.
Our payroll software helps avoid compliance issues, as a Department of Labor audit will look for issues regarding wages, overtime pay, or improper calculation of hours worked. Even if an employee worked outside regular hours or performed work duties off-premises, it must be reported. Payroll software collects data automatically to avoid human error. It also helps avoid making improper salary deductions and allows you to audit HR processes to ensure there are no compliance issues.
HR compliance is an important consideration for nursing homes and other healthcare facilities. Our cloud-based software ensures HR professionals are up to date on the latest regulations, can properly manage the hiring process, and can rely on an accurate time and attendance system.
In addition, it provides detailed analytics to assess your workforce, identify trends, and find areas for improvement or increased efficiency.
