US payroll compliance proposal advances in New Jersey legislature
June 20, 2012
The Assembly State Government Committee of New Jersey recently advanced proposed U.S. payroll legislation
that would modernize the state's payroll system, generating more than $500,000 in savings, The Jersey Journal reports.
The U.S. payroll compliance
change would make direct deposit mandatory for all state employees from July 1, 2014, and do away with the administrative costs associated with mailing pay stubs to employees by requiring pay information to be available online.
"It's the 21st century and it's time the state of New Jersey began acting like it," said Assemblyman Ruben Ramos, a Hoboken Democrat, in a statement
. "There's no excuse as to why the state insists on physically mailing pay stubs."
"Let's save money by moving past the outdated methods of the past," added Assemblyman Matthew Milam, a Democrat representing the Atlantic, Cape May and Cumberland Counties who co-sponsored the legislation, along with Ramos and two of their fellow assembly members, Connie Wagner and Annette Quijano.
