Did you know that in the Virgin Islands, the rights of the individual are far more protected than that of the business in the event of an unemployment claim? VISS will manage all of the staffing compliance issues with you to ensure that you are acting in co-ordinance with the Virgin Islands Fair Employment Act. We will review your payroll to ensure it is within these standards and also help you defend a case in the event of a termination. The PEO also absorbs the liability for compliance with the VI Fair Employment Act AND will file all of your staff related tax paperwork!
Businesses in the Virgin Islands often operate outside of the rules and regulations of the Federal government. It is unlikely that a newly terminated employee would go through the daunting steps of filing an ADA complaint, discrimination or harassment suit or a simple wrongful discharge claim, but they could!
When is the last time you had a new hire fill out paperwork outside of a W2 or 1099 form? Did you know that an Alternate Dispute Resolution Agreement signed by each new hire would effectively END a class action lawsuit? Is your on-boarding process legal? There is a new process for W-4’s in 2020, do you understand it? Do you know how sick pay and Family & Medical Leave pay work under the COVID19 bill that just passed?
Virgin Islands Staffing Solutions educates you on what compliance looks like on both the front and the backend of your business and let you decide how to address it. You built it. Let us protect it.
UP-TO-DATE INFORMATION ON CHANGES TO VI EMPLOYMENT LAW
When minimum wage, tax filings, unemployment law and on-boarding processes change, we make sure you have ALL of the relevant information to apply to YOUR business.
We ensure that our clients gather all the right paperwork and ask all thr right questions during the application process. This process, when done correctly, could protect YOUR business in the event of workman's comp claims, wrongful termination disputes and class action law suits.
UNDERSTANDING OF FEDERAL GUIDELINES
In the Virgin Islands, it sometimes takes time for small businesses to receive updated information on federal policies in employment law. Our VI Legal team keeps our clients in the know about policy changes that protect their businesses.
