As legislation and industry regulations continue to change, ensuring your employee benefit programs are compliant grows increasingly complex. Implementing the Affordable Care Act (ACA) alone has exponentially increased the necessary paperwork to meet all the reporting requirements.
Cairnstone Benefits Group provides three major pillars of support to help you navigate this ever-changing HR landscape.
- HR 360
- HR support
- Legal support
The entire Cairnstone team helps to protect your organization by making sure all benefit programs fully comply with the latest regulatory changes. We also facilitate employee benefit administration challenges, explaining and analyzing complicated laws and myriad acronyms like COBRA, ERISA, ADA, FLSA, FMLA, and HIPAA, and providing step-by-step guidance.
Our HR 360 software tool is designed to help you manage all your ACA and HR compliance requirements. Your source for up-to-date HR news and tools, HR 360 gives you instant access to more than 700 downloadable forms, including:
- Health care reform guidelines
- Interactive HR apps, including a job description builder; salary benchmarking tool; and employee performance review builder
- Step-by-step guides for interviewing, hiring, and terminating employees
- Federal and state labor law posters
- A sample employee handbook
In addition, Cairnstone regularly offers educational resources like newsletters, legislative updates, and webinars.
Our HR advisors are available for consultation or to supplement your HR staff. They can assist with compliance reviews, essentials like employee handbooks, or special projects like employee surveys, team building exercises, and compensation studies.
Whatever the need, we serve as an extension of your HR department when you need a seamless increase in bandwidth.
There are times when legal advice is necessary. The Cairnstone team can help with the difficult employment issues and offer proactive counseling. Our resource network includes a longstanding relationship with the top ERISA attorneys at Barnes & Thornburg LLP, headquartered in Indianapolis and ranked among the nation’s top 18 labor and employment practices.
Cairnstone is entrenched in the employee benefits industry – we understand its intricacies and recognize when you need additional support. You may require only one of these services, or you may need support in all three; every business is different and every concern is unique. We can customize a compliance and support approach to meet your specific needs. Contact Us.
