Happy New Year! Even though new years means a new beginning, JH Consulting will continue to work hard and dedicate our full efforts to provide our clients with high quality and valuable HR services.
For this month, we have prepared guides on interview questions and updates on new employment laws.
W-4 Update Coming Soon
The IRS is working on a new W-4. Employers should continue to use the 2017 Form W-4 until the 2018 Form is issued.
Paid Family Leave and SDI Benefits
Beginning January 1, 2018, the Paid Family Leave (PFL) and State Disability Insurance (SDI) benefits will change. Bill AB 908 increases the amount of PFL or SDI benefits an employee can receive to either 60 percent or 70 percent of their earnings, depending on the employee's income.
Form W-2 Due January 31st
Employers are required to file Form W-2 wage statements and independent contractor forms by January 31, 2018. Employers must also issue copies of the Form W-2 to all their employees on January 31.
