Do the terms FLSA, ACA, HIPPA, E-Verify or I-9 scare you?
They should if you have in-house security staff.
These terms are just some of the federally mandated employment laws that HOA’s condo boards and property managers must contend with. If you are not fully compliant with any of these it can cost you and your organization hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines, penalties and yes, even back wages.
What can you do to eliminate these HR compliance headaches and ensures the safety and security of your business, building or property in the real world?
Outsourcing may provide the solutions you’re looking for.
Outsourcing can provide a viable and affordable solution for many businesses, condominiums, planned communities and office and professional complexes. The security provider you choose will take on the costs and hassles of hiring, scheduling, HR administration, insurance, liability, training and outfitting employees.
If you’re looking for trained security officers, you’ll find that hiring your own staff can be extremely expensive. The last thing you want when it comes to security is less-than-qualified workers.
According to the US Department of Labor legally required benefits such as social security, workers compensation insurance, unemployment and Medicare costs can add an additional 14.5% to your payroll costs.
If you provide other benefits such as health & life insurance, 401K contributions, and/or paid leave time those costs can add an additional 24% to your payroll and operating expenses.
What that means for you is that an officer being paid $12.00 per hour plus full benefits is actually costing you $17.88 an hour. That equates to an additional $12,000 per year in expense per employee.
