XpertHR recently ranked the best and worst states for payroll and employment tax law compliance. XpertHR, an online company that helps HR departments understand compliance rules, found among the thorniest states for understanding HR regulations are California and New York, while the best states include Tennessee and Florida.

"Today's employer has the distinction of being the nation's central tax collector," says Rena Pirsos, JD, Legal Editor, XpertHR. "As a result, HR managers need to understand myriad complex issues and constantly changing requirements involved in payroll and employment tax law compliance in order to effectively oversee payroll processing."

However, there is another way of dealing with the hassle of keeping up with compliance and tax regulations: Hiring through an employer of record. Such a company would be in charge of paying the employee and handling all of the related tax and insurance requirements. Other solutions include an HR back office services company.

One of the benefits of temporary workers is they can scale to the size of a company as it grows. Bloomberg reports consumer sentiment in the U.S. has risen to its highest level since July of 2013. This means that companies might be expanding soon. In such a situation, it may be best to hire temp workers to avoid the complications associated with hiring a new worker.
