Personnel Concepts Introduces HIRE Act Certification Kit

Employers wishing to take advantage of the payroll tax abatement provision of the recent HIRE Act will find this kit useful in staying in legal compliance with the law

Online PR News – 23-April-2010 – – Personnel Concepts, pacesetter and pioneer in the labor law poster compliance industry, has just introduced a HIRE Act Certification Kit to help employers take full advantage of the law’s payroll tax forgiveness provisions in hiring the unemployed.

The recently enacted Hiring Incentives for Restoring Employment (HIRE) Act allows employers to “forgive” their 6.2 percent payroll tax portion if they take on workers who have been involuntarily unemployed for more than a month. An employer can save up to $6,621 on each new hire this way.

The Personnel Concepts HIRE Act Certification Kit provides all the tools necessary to certify the eligibility of the new hires and also comes with a notification poster to spell out the law’s provisions.

"Similar to the I-9 employment eligibility form and verification process, the key element with the HIRE Act is making sure the eligible new employees fill out their certification forms correctly,” said Robert Leland, director of research for Personnel Concepts. “Our kit makes that process as simple as possible.”
