A Tax Break Worth Broadcasting to Hiring Managers?


Attention HR communicators:  A new Social Security tax break appears to be a sweet incentive to hire the unemployed. “[Companies] don’t have to pay the tax on the wages of workers hired after Feb. 3, 2010, if they worked less than 40 hours in the previous 60 days,” The Kiplinger Washington Editors report this week. The change affects wages paid after March 18, 2010 and before Jan. 1, 2011. Details at http://www.kiplinger.com/businessresource/forecast/archive/tax-break-for-firms-now-hiring.html.

Is this a topic you would want to communicate within your organization, or do you think the tax break encourages hiring for the wrong reasons?
