Earlier this year, New Jersey Governor Murphy enacted the Diane B. Allen Equal Pay Act an gave the actual certified payroll reporting form an overhaul.
Now, the New Jersey Department of Labor (NJDOL), Division of Wage and Hour Compliance has made major changes to the Statement of Compliance. Among the changes to the form, there is now a section (table) requiring that where the fringe benefit due employees is paid to approved plans, funds or programs (rather than to the employee in cash), contractors must MUST indicate which part of the total fringe benefit amount was paid to each of the following plans/funds/programs:
The form also requires that for each plan/fund/program, the contractor must include the hourly rate paid, the name and address of the fund, plan or program administrator, the USDOL benefit plan filing number or EIN, and any third-party trustee and/or contact person.
No other state (to date) requires contractors to submit THIS MUCH information.
The City of New York - Office of the Comptroller - Bureau of Labor Law has released a REVISED/UPDATED Certified Payroll reporting form, which went into effect IMMEDIATELY upon the release of the revised form.
This updated report includes 2 pages of instructions, that MUST BE PRINTED AND SUBMITTED when you submit the actual report.
Recent security changes by Microsoft to Office 365/Office 2016 can cause CPS and CAPS to not be able to access the Excel and/or Word documents when you store CPS or CAPS data on the network.

If you open a Word document from a folder where you CPS or CAPS data is stored, and at the top of the screen there is a yellow bar that says “Protected View…” or “Security Warning, Macros have been disabled”.

New Jersey's Equal Pay Act Reporting to begin on 3/31/19.
New Jersey Governor Murphy enacted the Diane B. Allen Equal Pay Act. The law requires that any employer entering into a contract with the State of New Jersey or an instrumentality of the State for "qualify services" or "public works" must provide the Department of Labor and Workforce Development (NJDOL) - upon commencement of the contract - certain information for all employees who are employed in connection with the contract (for public works) and for all employees (for qualifying services. This requirement DOES NOT apply when contracting with local governments (municipalities and counties).
This report MUST contain the gender, race, ethnicity, job category, compensation, and number of hours worked by each employee AND MUST BE EMAILED to NJDOL beginning 4/1/19.
Compatibility updates for our software programs are ready and this is what it means to you.
NOTE: If you are an existing QuickBooks user, I do NOT recommend that you upgrade right away - as usual, I highly advise that you wait until AFTER you have done your W-2's and final year end payroll functions, there are often problems and it is because no one can test year end functions until year end!

There is a LOT going on in California regarding certified payroll reports, prevailing wage requirements and electronic certified payroll (eCPR) submissions. Briefly, here is the lastest news regarding California DIR eCPR, City of San Diego and PRISM Compliance Management, and LCPtracker requirements and how they will impact your company if you use QuickBooks.
Virginia DOT has teamed up with the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) and is now requiring ALL prime and subcontractors working on VDOT projects with federal funding to submit certified payrolls into the AASHTOWare Project Civil Rights and Labor™ (CRL) Management System.
You can create this spreadsheet with most of the data filled in by Certified Payroll Solution; however, there is NO WAY to provide this as a 100% accurate form that can be submitted due to complicated requirements. You will need to check this form carefully before submitting it.
As most of you are aware, the California DIR's (Department of Industrial Relations) electronic certified payroll reporting (eCPR) system has been updated with new requirements in place for public works projects awareded on or after April 1, 2015. The new eCPR system became effective on 6/4/2015.
The new eCPR requirements involve submitting an XML file and replaces the previous .pdf upload. XML stands for Extensible Markup Language and defines a set of rules for encoding documents in a file format which can be read by both humans and machines. This language, in my opinion, is far easier for a machine to read than a human!
