Introducing Angie: Our in-house HR specialist

Working live events can be chaotic and challenging. It’s nice to know you have someone in your corner. Angie, our in-house HR specialist and the newest member of the PayReel team helps us ensure our employees (like you!) get paid timely and accurately.

Quick and accurate payment

You submit timecards by end of business on Monday; your supervisor approves them; you get paid on Friday. It’s that easy.

And, of course, if you work overtime—you get paid for overtime. The PayReel team also makes sure you know when you become eligible for benefits.

No legal loopholes here

We’re not looking for a way around paying our employees fairly. We want you to get what you’ve earned. That’s why PayReel takes a proactive approach to staying on top of changing rules and regulations on both state and federal levels. Our in-house HR specialist Angie stays on top of industry news and changes to ensure compliance. At the first hint of a change, Angie works with the rest of the PayReel team to make the necessary adjustments quickly—with no extra work needed from you.

PayReel keeps up with ever-changing contractor and freelancer payment and compliance regulations with both internal conversations and external practices. You never even have to think about it.

The bottom line

Everyone from Uber to minor league baseball is trying to figure out labor laws and fair pay. The gig economy and the worker classification challenges it brings to the forefront are top-of-mind topics for the government, employers, and employees alike.

Our HR specialist Angie stays up to date on payroll regulations and works with the PayReel team to assist you in navigating the increasingly complicated waters of payroll.

The gig economy is here to stay: Here’s what it means for businesses

The gig economy is here to stay: Here’s what it means for businesses 4256 2832 Heidi McLean

The gig economy now makes up 34% of the US workforce. Gone are the days when cubicles dominate workers’ worlds from 9 to 5 Mondays through Fridays. Independent contractors are more likely to do the bulk of their work from home or from Starbucks than from a cubicle or brick and mortar offices. Tax laws, employment laws, and freelance payroll are all evolving in response. Here are some of the main implications for businesses:


Smaller core staff

As independent contractors do more of the work for businesses, many companies are shifting towards smaller core staffs. While there are benefits to having workers under the same roof during the same hours, small businesses may benefit financially by being responsible for fewer full-time workers.


New legal considerations  

Freelance payroll is a different ballgame and one of its biggest considerations is worker classification. While it was once a fairly black and white issue, the subject grows more important and more challenging each day. This highly confusing topic also carries intense legal ramifications. The government is paying more attention than ever (see Uber and America’s pastime as prime examples) to making sure workers are classified correctly—and making someone pay when they aren’t.


The bottom line  

Subjects like payroll taxes, worker classification, and freelance payroll get more complicated by the day. Partners who help make sense of a tricky transition as big as this one are worth the investment. At PayReel, we manage all of the above and, as the employer of record, we even take on all risk associated with a variable workforce. Think you might benefit from hiring a payroll service? Here’s a handy guide to find out more.
