Los Angeles, CA (PressExposure) February 10, 2012 -- CPEhr, a Los Angeles Human Resources Outsourcing firm, released today a new report highlighting important employment information that impacts businesses in 2012. The report, titled "2012 Human Resources Updates," covers a wide range of topics that directly affect employers in the coming year.
Over the past several months, dozens of new employment laws and legislative bills were signed into law that went into effect on January 1, 2012. These changes will directly impact the way employers conduct business, including areas such as payroll tax limits, new employment guidelines, and changing insurance markets.
"Not only are employers throughout the country burdened by the weak economy, but they are confused and troubled by the seemingly unending flow of employment regulations," said Ari Rosenstein, CPEhr's Director of Marketing. "Many small employers recognize it is virtually impossible to stay up to date on a regular basis, especially at the turn of a new year when many new laws go into effect. It is for this reason we publish our annual HR Updates report."
The report draws from CPEhr's human resources experience on a wide range of employment, payroll, tax and insurance areas. Topics covered in the report include:
New employment laws effective in 2012
The IRS Voluntary Worker Reclassification Program
Understanding the importance of correct employee/1099 classifications
2012 Tax Information and 401(k) limits
The value of employee training and development
Rising Workers' Compensation costs and how to mitigate them
Creative approaches to reduce increasing health care premiums
"Our hope is that employers will read the report and, at the least, become aware of the important changes coming in 2012. At best, we hope they will take the time to investigate the new laws and adjust their business activities accordingly," said Rosenstein.
