How to Activate CARES and FFCRA in Paylocity Tools

March 30, 2020

Paylocity has been hard at work familiarizing ourselves with the CARES and FFCRA Acts, and updating our product so it’s ready to support you during this time.

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES) includes measures aimed at stimulating the economy. The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) includes mandatory employer provided emergency sick pay and emergency paid family leave, as well as other provisions such as free COVID-19 testing.

Our HR Program Manager Shari Simpson is joined by Senior Director of Product and Technology, Christine Pellini, for a conversation about our approach to product updates based on CARES and FFCRA, including:

  • FFCRA: Tracking leave types, ensuring accurate pay, and how the credit works
  • CARES: Solution for employer social security taxes deferral
  • CARES: Employee retention credit functionality on the horizon

SHRM Certification has approved this webcast for 1 PDC toward SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP recertification. A program code will be provided at the end.

We’re in this together, and we’re monitoring the situation so we can keep providing you with resources and inform you need to support your people.
