Following the heels of the devastating Hurricane Harvey, businesses in Florida and Puerto Rico are preparing for a state of emergency as Hurricane Irma (a Category 5 storm) churns their way.
In shuttering their doors, one of the things that people think about right away is their businesses, but what about the needs of their employees? In these situations, it’s important to ensure that working families can rely on being paid in times when they need it most.
While some businesses will be immobilized during this time, payroll doesn’t have to be. Online payroll provides flexible options to pay employees electronically so that when inclement weather strikes, their payroll operations aren’t compromised.
For instance, cloud-based payroll applications allow businesses to run payroll from the comfort of their own homes using any device they can access the internet. If direct deposit is set up, employees will be paid once payroll is processed directly to their bank accounts, which they can access from the comfort of their homes.
