HR Checklist for 2022

Time to check in on your HR fitness for 2022. Now that we have closed out 2021, and started 2022, the human resources and payroll departments need to take some important January actions to ensure a smooth transition into 2022. We have a 10 point HR checklist to help your company get up to date with fast-changing federal and Florida rules and regulations. Read about 2022 payroll updates.

  1. Update New Hire Packet with 2022 documents. Replace your W4 with the 2022 version. Optional – send a W4 to existing employees to see if they would like to make changes for 2022.
  2. Ensure your current current Form I-9 is being used (expiration date for 2022). An update, or change, will be coming later this year.
  3. Go through I9 binder, or folder, to purge old I9 forms. The retention rule is a minimum of 3 years of 1 year after termination, whichever is longer.
  4. If insurance renewed January 1, update the Heathcare Exchange form (mandated by ACA) with current group health insurance renewal information (contribution cost and eligibility) on page 2.
  5. Update COVID policy, to reference latest CDC updates (recent update on shortened isolation/quarantine period issued December 27).
  6. Review, update and post the updated observed holiday schedule for 2022.
  7. Review recruiting and retention strategies for 2022 to keep up with the market changes. COVID has made an impact on the workplace and the Great Resignation is expected to continue into 2022. Check market rates for key positions.
  8. Review Employee Handbook for updates. Did employee count increase or decrease? Policy changes?
  9. If you are a federal contractor, with direct federal contracts, minimum wage will increase to $15.00 an hour in January 2022.
  10. If you are an employer who provides mileage, review the new rates effective January 1st, 2022.
