Wednesday, 28 March 2012 12:34

Since January 1 cost have risen in workers comp (mandated by NCCI), SUTA or state unemployment tax and FUTA (Federal unemployment tax). These 3 items alone have probably caused a 2% increase for payroll cost in Florida.

Although business is paralyzed to do anything directly to reduce these costs there is something you can do. Payroll, PEO & Employee Leasing companies also live and die by the cost of these items as well. However, many of these groups have been very shrude and have adapted and have been able to mitigate the rising costs for their service. On the other hand some of them have their hands tied with the same problems as other Florida businesses and can do nothing about the rising cost.
