As an employer, you’re responsible for managing an overwhelming number of legal requirements, both at the federal and state levels. To make things worse, other government entities such as the DOL, IRS, HHS and EBSA (just to name a few) are targeting, auditing, and penalizing organizations that fail to comply with their regulations. Some of the requirements employers face are long-standing, while others emerge as recently enacted legislation goes into effect. So, who is helping you with Employee Benefits compliance?
The administrative burden to remain compliant is huge for employers. Teams of all sizes seem to struggle to keep up, and it’s a big deal! The fines for compliance lapses are so financially severe that employers simply can’t afford to mess up. The expectation is diligence and perfection – yikes!
Offering excellent Employee Benefits can be an effective way to attract talent and retain loyal employees. However, employers must ensure that they are in compliance each year to avoid penalties. The Hartin Dynamics team may be the partner you need to help get things right. Let’s talk and see if there is a fit.
