Remember to update your Labor Law Posters

Employers are required by law to post labor law posters in the workplace, as well as online for remote employees. If you haven’t updated your labor law posters for the new year, now is the time. 

If you want to automate your postings once and for all, we have a Poster Service that will proactively provide you with federal, state, city and county labor law postings and updates you need to remain compliant and protected from government fines and penalties of up to $25,000. 

To learn more about this Poster Service, please reach out to your CSM.

Holiday Schedules

Please schedule your payroll processing and pay dates around bank closings and be aware of upcoming B2E Solutions closings, so you do not encounter unexpected delays.

GMA SHRM Professional Development Summit

Next month, we’ll be at the Greater Madison Area SHRM Professional Development Summit on March 19th. If you plan to attend, be sure to check out the session called “Creating a Culture of Hustle Without Burnout.” It’ll be a good one (and not just because we’re sponsoring it).

Paid Family and Medical Leave Insurance (PFML) Requirements

Many states require that employers offer paid PFML insurance, which provides wage replacement to employees taking leave to care for an ill family member or to bond with a new child. 

As employers are increasingly hiring remote employees, it’s important to take note of state PFML requirements.

Check out our recent blog to learn more about the state-by-state PFML requirements and the payroll implications for your organization.

New Security Requirements

UKG has a number of new security requirements that will impact you and your system users. 

New requirements include: 

  • A minimum password length of 15 characters for all users
  • More frequent prompts asking users to verify their identity
  • Mandatory use of an authenticator app, voice verification (automated phone call) or text for users with access to more sensitive information, such as other employees’ data. 

Note: While SMS text and email verification will remain acceptable two-factor verification methods for some users (depending on their access levels), we highly encourage all users to transition to voice verification or ideally an authenticator app.
