In today’s business environment, compliance with government regulations is an increasingly difficult task. The rules can be complex and contradictory, leaving many HR and payroll departments in a difficult position. For example, WorkForce Software has found that more than 75% of US organizations surveyed do not comply with key provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA).
Many employers mistakenly believe they are in compliance simply because they have a workforce management system in place. There are several reasons why a commercial application can fail to ensure compliance. Two of the most common issues are:
- Garbage In, Garbage Out – when an employer selects a commodity-grade workforce management system, the software provider typically does not have employment law expertise. As a result, the software provider merely configures (or, worse – customizes) the system to automate the current processes, which has no impact on improving compliance.
- Partial Automation – many ‘automated’ systems are too limited or inflexible to accommodate the full set of pay rules across an organization. These systems leave crucial pockets of workforce management activities to be performed in error-prone manual methods, which hinders both the ability to ensure compliance and the ability to generate holistic compliance reports from a single system.
