Employers who operate multiple companies don’t always realize that their employees who work for both must have their hours at each company combined for overtime calculations.
When employees work for two different companies owned by one employer (called joint employment), they are still entitled to overtime when their clocked hours at both companies exceed 40 in a week (or 8 in a day in some states).
“Joint employment exists when a person is employed by two or more employers such that the employers are responsible, both individually and jointly, for compliance with a statute.” – DOL
Payroll is a big job and it takes a lot of training to get it right. If you do it yourself, you have to be very careful. You must be sure that the correct taxes are withheld from your employee’s paychecks, the wages and bonuses are correctly calculated, the correct taxes are paid, that wage and hour laws are followed, and that your employees get paid on time.
Outsourcing payroll is the the best option for most small businesses.
