Don’t risk non-compliance with local employment, social insurance, and tax regulations.
Omnipresent provides global employment solutions and professional employment organisation (PEO) services for companies looking to grow and build out a global team in the United States. Traditional methods of establishing global employment and subsidiaries in the United States typically take months and can incur heavy costs. Omnipresent’s global employment solutions and professional employer organization services are helping hundreds of organisations onboard new employees in the United States in a matter of days with full compliance of local labour laws. We use a tech-forward approach to streamline the process.
Partnering with a Professional Employer Organization (PEO), or Employer of Record (EOR), is often more effective, faster and less risky.
Employer costs include Federal Insurance Contributions Act (FICA) Social Security/Medicare, Unemployment, and Life Insurance. Use the OmniCalculator to estimate costs, or contact us for further information.
Federal withholding is based on the employee’s W4, taxable wages and pay frequency.
State withholding is based on the employee’s state form, taxable wages and pay frequency.
Working Hours per Week:
The standard US workweek is 40 hours. Typical working hours are 9 to 5 from Monday to Friday.
Federal overtime provisions are contained in the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Unless exempt, employees covered by the act must receive overtime pay for hours worked over 40 in a workweek at a rate no less than time and one-half their regular rates of pay. There is no limit in the act on the number of hours employees aged 16 and older may work in any particular week. The Act also does not require overtime pay for work on Saturdays, Sundays, holidays, or regular days of rest, unless overtime is worked on such days.
Please note that the below information covers national holidays and should be used for informative purposes only and not as a guarantee for payroll purposes. While we strive to offer you accurate information, public holidays are subject to frequent changes and can be dependent on regional differences. Should you need more detailed information on public holidays, please consult the government pages of the state and/or the local municipality of your employee.
There is no national requirement in the US to offer paid sick leave, though many states have their own laws on this. The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) requires companies with more than 50 employees to allow them unpaid time off for medical leave or to care for a family member. It’s important to note that in reality, even without a legal obligation to provide paid leave, 74% of full-time US workers have an arrangement with their employer to provide paid time off in the event of sickness. Arrangements vary from state to state.
FMLA was signed into law in 1993 and requires employers to provide up to 12 weeks unpaid leave for both parents at the birth of a baby for companies of 50 employees or more. Many smaller businesses do not have mandated paid maternity leave for employees.
Paternity leave varies state by state. Many states do not require employers to provide paid paternity or parental leave. If an employee is eligible and covered by FMLA, they may be allowed unpaid leave from the federal government.
Vacation time is not required by US law. Instead, it's a benefit decided on an individual basis between employees and employers. 14 working days off is standard practice.
Employees do not have the legal right to severance pay.
In almost all states, an employer can terminate an employee for any non-discriminatory, non-retaliatory reason, at any time, with or without notice, and with or without cause. But typically, employees are terminated with 2 weeks notice.
