    Some one please explain WHY any employer would hire more people if this is JUST ONE Example of Federal Payroll recording keeping requirements!

    One Federal Agency... Department of Labor...
    “Hello Mr. Peterson, this is Mrs. McBride from the Wage and Hour division of the Department of Labor”.
    “You have been selected at random for inspection to ensure you are in compliance with our record keeping requirements.
    Record keeping for ONE employee!
    Employee Master File

    Employee Data
    • Name (match with social security card)
    • Address (with Zip code and apartment number)
    • Sex
    • Date of birth
    • Work location
    • Social security number
    • Company-assigned employee number
    • Occupation/classification
    • State where employee works
    Employment/Wage-Hour Data
    • Hire date/time
    • Termination date
    • Payment date
    • Exempt/nonexempt status (FLSA)
    • Regular rate of pay
    • Additions to and deductions from pay
    • Shift differential or bonus
    • Frequency of payment/pay period
    • Hours worked per day
    • Hours worked per week
    • Workweek
    • Straight time hours/pay
    • Overtime hours/pay
    • Tipped wages
    • From 4070 Employee’s Report of Tips to Employer
    • Amount of Tip credit taken
    Tax and Payroll Data
    Completed Filed and Updated FORMS
    • Form W4 – Employers Allowance Certificate
    • State withholding allowance certificate, if state does not accept the federal Form W-4
    • Local withholding allowance certificate or certificates of residence or non-residence. If required by the local jurisdiction where the work is performed or the employee resides

    For the pay period and Calendar Year

    • Total wages subject to federal/state/local taxes
    • Total wages subject to social security tax
    • Total wages subject to Medicare tax
    • Total compensation


    • Total federal/state/local income taxes withheld
    • Total social security taxes withheld
    • Total Medicare taxes withheld
    • Total state unemployment and/ or disability taxes withheld
    • Tax paid by employer but not deducted from wages
    f you were to willfully violate these recordkeeping requirements, you could receive a criminal penalty of up to $10,000 and/or imprisonment for up to 6 months (although a jail sentence can only be imposed for second and subsequent convictions).

    So remember, you must keep accurate files on current or past employees for up to 4 years, AND you may be inspected at any time.

    AND REMEMBER... THIS IS FOR the Department of Labor!~!

    The reason businesses aren't hiring is because consumers aren't buying. Anything else is trivial.

    Another REASON businesses AREN'T hiring...
    OSHA!!! Bathroom rules..just ONE
    Just one example of how rules and regulations discourage the hiring of new employees..

    For example are you aware that PER OSHA "water closet" means a toilet facility maintained within a toilet room for the purpose of both defecation and urination and which is flushed with water.
    Minimum number of Number of employees water closets
    1 to 15.................................................... 1
    16 to 35................................................... 2
    36 to 55................................................... 3
    56 to 80................................................... 4

    OSHA requires if a business has 1 water closet for 15 workers
    by hiring just ONE worker or 16 the business owner
    must have 2 water closets!

    You can list all of the examples you want. Here are the truths.....

    1) If nobody is buying your product then you won't hire employees.

    2) If there's a buck to be made then nothing will stop someone from making it and that includes hiring.

    Companies aren't hiring because the economy is too unstable. No one really knows what the future will bring in terms of regulations and taxes. Effectively, business is waiting until obama is voted out of office.
