Frequently asked questions

We know that changing any system can be a daunting, time-consuming, project.  So, to make your decision making process easier, here are some top questions we receive from prospective clients, and our responses. 

Changing any software is inconvenient, but our clients constantly tell us they are so glad that they switched to Forework!  As the saying goes, “you don’t know what you don’t know” and while your payroll process might be functioning fine, most business owners are not aware that how they’ve set up payroll is not compliant with the law.  This means that the business is a “sitting duck” to an expensive, time-consuming and potentially embarrassing labor audit or lawsuit.  Employees these days have so many resources at their disposal.  If your business is not in 100% compliance, it’s only a matter of time before it is in legal trouble.  Why worry about this possibility?  Eliminate the risk and worry, and give your payroll to the real experts on labor laws. 

We currently run payroll for 35,000 employees per week. 

Forework has clients in all industries, from healthcare, to educational institutions, professional offices, manufacturing, and hospitality. As most business owners know, many labor laws are industry-specific. Our attorneys and payroll experts are sensitive to these industry-specific rules and ensure that your labor operations are always in compliance.

All 50 States. Forework cannot process payroll for employees taxed under non-US tax systems.

Five years, but our payroll and tax software is built on the UKG (what was known as Kronos) platform. UKG’s technology has been around for almost 50 years and is supported by 10,000 software engineers who upgrade and maintain the technology.

We look to onboard new clients within 45-60 days. Plus, we do the transition of the data for new clients, making their transition easy! Our engineers will work with new clients to move all their payroll data onto Forework’s system. We do require about 2 weeks’ time to train a new client’s payroll team on the new system. We also do “parallel” payrolls with a client’s current payroll system, to ensure all the data in Forework’s system is “matching up” with the data in the current payroll system. Then, when a new client goes “live” with Forework, our account managers will work with the client’s staff for 3 payroll cycles to make sure that the client’s payroll team feels comfortable and can do the payroll independently.

We work with new clients to preserve that data in accordance with record retention requirements of all applicable laws.

A client’s team would be made up of no more than 3 people for day-to-day issues that come up with payroll or human resources. It is always the same 3 individuals who know the client’s business, and their “pain points.” Clients do not get shuffled around to overseas call centers or unknown individuals; they always work with the same known team that has been with them since day 1 of sales and onboarding.
