Some may view compliance as not necessary, overrated, annoying, a waste of time, and simply harmful to profitability. These are perceptions and as they say, perception is reality. Some employees may be tempted to act unethically when trying to make a deal. After all, the chances of getting caught are slim, right? Well, that’s one way of looking at it. Another way is to ask yourself what’s really more important: flying under the radar? Or satisfying your customers? When it comes to compliance and ethical behavior, the true payoff is customer satisfaction.  It really comes down to one simple premise - your customer’s perception is the only reality that should matter. To learn more about how to gain customer trust, contact info@kpaonline.com.  KPA Read More...

House Ways and Means Chairman Paul Ryan and Senate Finance Chairman Orrin Hatch on Monday wrote to small business leaders, including NAEDA, asking for ideas on how to cut the effective tax rate for businesses that file on the individual side of the tax code. "We are looking for ideas on how to reduce the effective tax rate without reducing the statutory tax rates in a manner that will make small businesses more competitive and better able to invest, grow, hire, and increase wages for their employees," the chairmen wrote. NAEDA will be responding to the request and will make this a top priority issue for the May 20-21 Fly-in. A copy of the letter can be read here. Read More...

Termination, discharge: What are the requirements for notice to employees over the age of 40?

Question: We have a current employee who has been with the company for 8 years in a Director role. We are considering outsourcing the work he does along with all IT work. I know we can go ahead and lay him off due to these business decisions and we would be putting together a separation agreement. My concern is that I read recently that anyone over the age of 40 is to be given the separation agreement at least 21 days in advance of the separation. True? We are concerned because he does have security controls, etc. and if we give him this advance notice - we are not sure what damage he might do to the company. Read More...
