What do I have to do when my employees are on Band of Hands payroll?You log in to our platform and approve your employees time each week. You can also sign up to receive text reminders.
Do I still need to use my current payroll provider?No. You would switch over to Band of Hands. We can help you with that process. With Band of Hands, you no longer have to manage multiple vendors and contracts for employee-related services, such as payroll, HR, legal advisory and others. You now have a one-stop shop for all your employment related needs.
Do I have to put all of my employees on Band of Hands?No! (Though, you're saving time, money and stress if you do!) You can put however many of your employees on our payroll and add others on whenever you like for no added sign-up fee.
How does the sign up process work and how long does it take to have my employees onboarded and employed under Band of Hands?Once you sign up as a company, you'll be able to easily add your employees. They will access their onboarding documentation and e-verify forms on the Band of Hands platform. The onboarding paperwork consists of standard forms, including EO Survey (Name, SSN, Race, Veteran status, Signature, Date) Payroll Direct Deposit Form if preferred, and I-9 Documentation Form which will be e-verified. From signup to e-verify and on payroll, the process can take anywhere from a day to a week, depending on how quickly your staff completes their onboarding..
What if my employees are 1099?When you put your staff on Band of Hands, they become W-2 employees. This is advantageous for simpler tax filings and ensuring compliance with the 18+ states (and the number is growing), that are mandated to follow the AB-5 law. This law prohibits the classification of employees as contractors. Trying to "slide by" by having misclassified employees will only result in an audit and hefty fines. If you are in a state where 1099 employees are legal, and you'd like to continue to operate that way, we can work with you to determine what options are best for you and your staff.
Is there a setup fee?There is a one-time set up fee of $250 per company. This covers the account setup on our platform for back office and payroll systems. You'll be charged during your signup process. If you add more employees later on, you will not be charged that again.
What is the process for terminating an employee?Band of Hands handles all termination paperwork. We'll ask you to provide any written documentation as to performance discussions if the separation was due to performance related reasons. At any time you are having performance issues, please be sure to involve us so we ensure to follow proper protocol for such matters.
Will my employees benefit from being part of Band of Hands?Yes - Band of Hands is a win-win for both the employer and the employee. Your employees will now have only one W-2 for tax filings and will show a consistent employment history, which is helpful for loans and other financial approval situations. They have the perks of a W-2 even if they are a shift worker.
What if I have my own employee handbook?We do have a standard Band of Hands handbook, but we recognize that you may have company specific policies for your employees. You can send that to us and we'll review your handbook to ensure that we are aligned in overall philosophy and discuss if there are any variations that need to be addressed.
When the employees are hired, who is the legal employer?When employees are either hired or transferred to our payroll, they onboard and become BOHPS (Band of Hands Professional Services) employees of record. Meaning, they are legally employed by us, but work as usual for you at your company. We have a "joint employer" relationship with you and the employees. You can still refer to them as your employees even though we technically handle the back end part of their employment. This preserves company culture, as you are still their day-to-day manager and the front-end remains the same. Employment related decisions always involve engaging Band of Hands, as we are responsible to ensure compliance with employment regulations and processes. We also can provide guidance for you when coaching or counseling is needed with employees, and participate in the process if needed.
Do you have a sample of the offer letter that will be sent to the candidates?The offer letter is created electronically through our platform and is sent to the worker inviting them to the job.
What if I need to hire people?Once you've sign up as a company on Band of Hands at https://app.bandofhands.com/signup/company, you can start posting jobs. Our marketplace of pre-vetted talent will apply to jobs that seem to be a good fit, and you'll select the candidate(s) you want to hire. It's a one-click hiring process. Need help posting jobs?
