One of the most difficult components of being a business owner is keeping up-to-date on the many federal employment laws that may apply to your organization.
Navigating these laws on your own can lead to unnecessary risk and exposure for your business. By partnering with SynchronyHR, our team of HR professionals will work with you to stay up-to-date on the latest legislation affecting your workplace, including (but not limited to):
Affordable Care Act
Applicable to employers with 50 or more full-time employees, including full-time equivalent employees. Requires employers to offer affordable, minimum value health coverage to their full-time employees (and dependent children) to avoid potential penalties.
Americans with Disabilities Act
Applicable to all employers with 15 or more employees. Prohibits employers from discriminating against qualified individuals with disabilities in all employment practices.
Applicable to private-sector employers with 20 or more employees that sponsor group health plans (including those sponsored by state and local governments).Requires employer-sponsored group health plans to offer continuation coverage to eligible employees and their dependents when coverage would otherwise be lost due to certain events.
Equal Pay Act
Applicable to nearly all employers. Requires employers to provide equal
compensation to men and women who perform equal work within the same workplace.
Fair Labor Standards Act
