Wages and Benefits - Federal Compliance Meetings
As you know, we are witnessing frequent and sweeping changes to federal laws that impact all our employees, full and part time. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) brought new reporting requirements in January of 2016, and now changes to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) are effective in December of 2016.
We are not out of compliance today, however we must take action to remain in compliance as the new changes take effect - in justice to our employees and to avoid possible fines/penalties associated with non-compliance.
Meetings have been scheduled to provide information and action plans to help you. Pastors and Administrators with your Business/Office Managers, please attend one of these meetings together to give you the best opportunity to be ready for the changes. Follow the register button at the top of this page to select your meeting.
The following meeting choices have been provided:
St. Therese, Kansas City (north), August 15, 2016, 1:30-3:00
St. John LaLande, Kansas City (east), August 18, 2016, 10:00 - 11:30
St. Thomas More, Kansas City (south), August 23, 10:00-11:30
Our Lady of Guadalupe, St. Joseph, August 23, 1:30-3:00
Our Lady of Lourdes, Harrisonville, August 25, 10:00-11:30
I recognize the challenges we all face as we set priorities and manage workloads. Based on information from our Finance and HR departments, this matter of compliance is important and urgent, and I ask you to consider your attendance at one of these meetings to be required.
Please register and attend one of the meetings, then partner with our Chancery departments who are working to help you meet these new requirements. Should you have any questions regarding this memo, or if your parish does not have a business or office manager, please contact Bob Roper at 816-714-2311 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
