Red Wing Software Releases Payroll Software Tool to Track Employee Status for Employers and PPACA Requirement

January 17, 2013 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
Red Wing, MN January 17, 2013 Red Wing Software has created a report to track employee status for the upcoming Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) requirement that employers with 50 or more full time employers offer health coverage for those full time employees. This will be a standard report included within CenterPoint Payroll Software.

While the PPACA requirement does not begin until 2014, employers will need to look back at hours worked during 2013 to determine eligibility, and that's why it is important to begin tracking that information within the payroll system in 2013. Some employers may also want to monitor and stay up to date on how many hours employees are working and whether they are qualifying for full time, so they know what to expect when the requirement is in place. The PPACA considers 30 or more hours to be full time, and some employers may have situations in which it can be difficult to determine an employee's average hours. The new CenterPoint Payroll Software report will help employers stay aware of their employees' hours and will also enable them to repor t that information when required, for whatever time period necessary.

The report will be available for CenterPoint Payroll Software users in 2013. In order to get the update, customers will need a current Customer Care Membership. For more information about CenterPoint Payroll Software, visit, contact Red Wing Software at 800-732-9464 or e-mail
