PEO Advises On Identity Theft & Paychecks

Answer: In the past, California Labor Code Section 226 did require employers to provide employees with an accurate, itemized paycheck stub that included the employee’s name and Social Security Number. However, this section was amended in 2005 to address the increasing concern of identity theft. Employers now may include no more than the last four digits of an employee’s Social Security Number. If the rest of the Social Security Number is shown, it needs to be blacked out and non-identifiable.

As a PEO (Professional Employer Organization), Total HR Management points out that Social Security Numbers can be used only the last four digits are being shown. The rest of the Social Security Number should always be x’d out. For more information about how we can help you, please contact Total HR Management at (800) 975-5128 for an initial consultation.

Human Resources Outsourcing Santa Clarita

With a successful business sector and a rapidly growing population, Santa Clarita is a notable example of a “boomburb”. While experiencing a rush of positive growth, the city has maintained its suburban character and high living standards.

On July 1, 2007, to offer new businesses tax incentives to operate inside the city, the industrial and commercial areas in northern and western Santa Clarita were zoned as a federally recognized Enterprise Zone. Presently, the Santa Clarita Enterprise Zone covers 97% of all commercial, business, and industrial zoned land within the City of Santa Clarita.
