    Does anyone outsource their payroll processing?

    We are a Heavy Civil GC based in the Northeast with a majority of Union workforce (300 out of 375 employees +/-) and are curious if any of the payroll processing companies out there can handle all the Union requirements.

    We have fewer employees, two union workforces as well as non-union employees.  We also travel outside of our home base so to speak, bringing other union work / wage rules into play.   Any time I have entertained outsourcing our payroll to a third party, I have decided against it because there are just too many scenarios to consider when trying to set up a work flow that makes sense.  Couple that with a detailed job cost system and it just doesn't seem to be of benefit to outsource.

    If you've got more than a couple of locals, union payrolls can complicated really quick.  I'm with Lucrezia on her points as well. Keep it in-house and hold on tight to your payroll manager.

    We use ADP--a lot of manual reconciling, but complies with requirements.​

    Agree, Payroll4Construction is great.  However, we use Foundation as our main ERP.  Don't know how it would work, or if it works, with other software.

    Foundation owns Payroll4construction. Foundation is the software and P4C is the on-going payroll service

    There is a group in Scottsdale called Tag Employer Services.  Many of my clients utilize their payroll and other HR solutions and I have only heard great things.  They integrate with all different platforms.
