We are adding a new section of data to input on the first screen of the 'Add New Hire' process within Onboarding. The new section consists of all related 'Employment Data' such as job title, division, and department. In addition to this added section, on the same screen, you’ll find that you now have the ability to add up to 5 different rates for your new employee if they fall under the hourly pay type.
With the newest product update for our onboarding software, you’ll find some much-anticipated improvements. The most noteworthy of these is the ability to delete an onboarding employee. This is useful if you have an employee who never showed up to orientation or decided to go with another job. For whatever reason, if they have started, but not yet completed, the Onboarding process, you will be able to delete the employee record and all the Onboarding records.
We’ve made updates to our Onboarding software. You will now have the ability to add documents, videos and website links to the self-onboarding process. This means that when an employee is registering, they will be able to sign off on employee handbooks, training videos, company policies, or any other pre-employment material you would like them to view.
On the evening of Thursday, March 9th, we will introduce a new feature called ‘Company Resources’. This feature will replace what has been traditionally known as our ‘Company Links’ option. Any links you currently have in our existing ‘Company Links’ feature will transfer over to ‘Company Resources’ with the same security levels in place.
Thursday night (February 9th), Dominion will be releasing some additional enhancements to the Benefits Administration feature. These enhancements focus on the ability to add voluntary short and long-term disability plans to enrollments. A large part of this enhancement focuses on obtaining annual salary/wage information to use in the calculations for these plans as well as to use in voluntary life plan elections. Enhanced features are explained below.
We have added the ability to select Indiana and Ohio as a State W-4 selection. For both of these options to be enabled, you will need to reach out to us so our Tax Filing team can set it up for you. Once the setup is done, you will see the appropriate state selection.
Benefit packages will be a new approach available to address which plans an employee is eligible for. Benefit packages can be set up within the software, and then plans can be assigned to one or more benefit packages. Once a benefits package is set up and plans are assigned to the package, employees can then be assigned to the benefits package. An employee will be considered eligible for a plan if the plan is assigned to the employee’s designated benefit package, or if the employee is marked as individually eligible for the plan.
We have added a new deduction type that calculates a 'union' type deduction where a flat amount can be multiplied by a particular group of hours. The new option is called Flat($) * Partial Gross Hours. If you would like to utilize this you will need to contact us
On the evening of Thursday, December 22nd, we released an update to our Onboarding feature. During the Add New Hire process, you will be offered the option to select a state other than the current default of Michigan. The states offered are based on two conditions: Whether the client state tax has been activated for that client, and whether the state has been made available by our project team. Keep in mind it will only show you the options of the state(s) in which your business resides.
