Terminations Can Be Easier with Baron Payroll Tools To Help You

How an employer handles firing or laying off an employee on the front end can make all the difference imaginable on how the separation of employment actually takes place. A well-executed, carefully planned employee termination can avoid any serious stir in the workplace.

The Employee Termination report is only available during the termination process. It lists information regarding any direct deposits, garnishments, leave accruals, scheduled earnings and deductions. This report also lists any company assets that the employee has been assigned that will need to be returned before the employee’s departure.

For customers with the COBRA Integration service, data resulting from the termination is automatically sent to the COBRA Event System to prepare the required Qualifying Event Notice. Data included: benefit end reason, COBRA eligible benefits and coverage codes, and any dependents enrolled in the plans.

Our Workforce Management System Helps In OSHA Reporting Too

Under the OSHA Act, employers are responsible for providing a safe and healthful workplace. OSHA’s mission is to assure safe and healthful workplaces by setting and enforcing standards, and by providing training, outreach, education and assistance. Employers must comply with all applicable OSHA standards. Employers must also comply with the General Duty Clause of the OSHA Act, which requires employers to keep their workplace free of serious recognized hazards.

OSHA is now requiring certain employers to submit detailed annual reports of workplace injuries and illnesses (data employers are already required to record) electronically.

Officially taking effect January 2017, OSHA will analyze the data to use its compliance resources more efficiently. The amount of data submitted will vary depending on the size of company and industry and some of the data will also be posted to the OSHA website. This data will be cleared of Personally Identifiable Information (PII) before being posted online, according to OSHA.
