Understanding the HR Needs of Federal Contractors 


Whether you’re grappling with small business set-aside procurements, complying with SBIR programs, or trying to stay abreast with the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP), it’s clear you need streamlined systems and robust support. 

Some of the key areas you might be dealing with include:  

  • Reducing Employer Liability: The threats of litigation and non-compliance penalties can have serious consequences for your business. Hence, creating practices and adopting solutions that limit your exposure and mitigate these risks should be a top priority. 


  • Industry Regulation Training: Staying up to date on industry-specific regulations can be challenging, especially when they are ever-changing. That’s where our compliance team comes in!  


  • Employment and Veteran Reporting: EEO and VETS reporting can be complex, involving numerous stipulations and intricate details. Making a misstep or neglecting these reports can have significant implications. 

We support businesses in 43 states with:  


#1. Certified Payroll Services 


Certified payroll is of utmost importance for federal contractors. This is because, as a federal contractor, you are obliged to adhere to the Davis-Bacon and Related Acts (DBRA).  

These laws necessitate you to submit a weekly certified payroll record, ensuring that as an entity doing business with the government, you’re providing fair wages and maintaining labor standards. Missing or erroneous certified payroll can lead to hefty penalties, loss of contracts, or even legal sanctions. 

Vested HR offers:  

  • Compliance: Our certified payroll services are designed to ensure that all regulatory requirements are met, protecting you from potential legal issues. 


  • Accuracy: Battling complex regulations can lead to errors. Our dedicated team boasts an in-depth understanding of these laws and can ensure your payroll is accurate and ready for audit. 


  • Time Savings: Instead of spending countless hours managing certified payroll, you can delegate this task to us and concentrate on what you do best – running your business. 

Remember, it’s not just about having certified payroll, it’s about doing it right and doing it efficiently. And that’s what we’re here for, to make your life easier while ensuring adherence to laws and regulations.

#2. Remote Payroll Processing  


Handling payroll can be time-consuming and complex, especially if you’re a federal contractor with operations spread across different states.  

You can trust us to fulfill your payroll needs with accurate and timely remote processing services, no matter where you conduct business. Most importantly, you can rest easy knowing that we can process payroll in all states where we are licensed. 


#3. Streamlining E-Verify 


With the complex tapestry of immigration laws and employment regulations in the United States, ensuring your business is E-Verify compliant and maintaining that status can be an uphill task. 

We streamline the verification and compliance process in several ways:  

  • Efficient Processing: Our knowledgeable HR professionals handle the verification process on your behalf. Once you onboard a new employee, there is no need for you to go through the lengthy E-Verify process as we take care of it from start to finish. 


  • Detailed Reporting: To keep you informed and updated, we provide detailed reports on the compliance status of each employee. This helps identify any potential issues in real time and quickly take corrective action. 


  • Constant Updates: As federal regulations change, we stay ahead by being up to date with new rules and requirements. This allows us to ensure your company is always in compliance and not at risk of penalties or fines. 

We are a fully accredited PEO with certification by ESAC, which means that we meet the highest standards of fiscal stability, legal compliance, and reporting. With us by your side, compliance worries become a thing of the past!
