Associated HCM is prepared for COVID-19
The health, safety and well-being of everyone in the Associated HCM world, from our staff to our clients to our partners in the marketplace, is paramount to us at Associated HCM. Due to the concerns and heightened awareness regarding the spread of Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) in the region and across the country, we wanted to alert you that we are closely monitoring the situation. With the rapid spread of COVID-19, we have activated our business continuity & crisis management plan to ensure that our operations are unaffected and operating normally.
As many of our clients and partners saw in 2012 during Hurricane Sandy and its’ aftermath, Associated HCM’s experienced management team has contingency plans in place that allow us to continue to process your payroll and service your HR needs uninterrupted through the use of expanded technology and remote work. We are prepared to respond swiftly to new developments while simultaneously safeguarding the health and well-being of our employees.
With that being said, is your business prepared? Have you considered asking any of your employees that currently receive a paper check to convert to direct deposit and eliminate the need for those staff members to pick their check up? Are you addressing how leave will work if an employee contracts the virus or is exposed to someone with the virus? For more best practices, information on how your employees may be covered under FLMA, NYPFL or the ADA and more, click here to download our comprehensive Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Checklist.
As always, we will keep you posted of any updates or if changes are made to processing schedules as we continue to monitor affected areas. We look forward to serving your payroll, HR and time and labor needs as we navigate this global health challenge together. Please do not hesitate to reach out to your CSR with any questions or concerns.
