12/10/2015 Problems with Product/Service | Read Complaint Details

Additional Notes

Complaint: This company has incorrectly stated my 2013 W2 and the *** *ent a letter of payment which was due 10/2015. A copy of the document was sent in 9/2015. The company has not resolved this issue. The company is $8262.18 off on line 1 of my 2013 W2 from line 2 and 3. I NEED this corrected ASAP. It takes forever to get a hold of anyone in this company by phone. I need this corrected

Desired Settlement: i need a correct 2013 W2 or a written explanation of what the amount is for.

Business Response:

Misunderstandings may occur between individual taxpayers and taxing authorities that result in correspondence from a tax agency. Usually these can be quickly resolved once all the relevant facts are known. In this case the employee was calling us directly for assistance and due to our obligations around confidentiality we can only speak with contacts that are authorized by our customers.  Once our customer requested that Paylocity prepare amendments and Form W-2c for their employee, we promptly delivered the corrections.

We have confirmed with our customer that they have no outstanding issues with Paylocity related to this employee. Regardless, we stand ready to support our customer and their employee if they need assistance understanding or navigating this process.

Additional Notes

Complaint: I reached out twice before anyone in sales contacted me. ***** ****** did finally respond; responses were curt and unprofessional. Eventually, ***** handed our inquiry to **** ****** It was made explicitly clear that (1) PTO accruals were a major factor in our choice of payroll service provider, and (2) that we were interested in pre-tax HSA deductions and corresponding deposits. He assured me there would be no complications with either. We then transitioned to implementation; ****** ******* was our Implementation Consultant. **** sold Paylocity as 'a technology company', but there were technology issues right from the start. **** sent me a secured email message that allowed me use the ********************** Portal to transmit sensitive information. He and I used this form of communication multiple times without any problems. Then, I needed to send ****** our implementation spreadsheet. Not only was he unfamiliar with the technology, he was unable to retrieve the spreadsheet (I sent myself a copy of the message, and had no trouble). He even asked that I just email it to him regularly, without any protection. I take data security very seriously, especially when it contains sensitive information (full names, addresses, dates of birth, and social security numbers). It would be assumed that, as a payroll company, Paylocity and their employees should also. Eventually, our implementation was underway. Prior to our first payroll, I inquired as to why our PTO accruals were not prepared. ****** informed me, for the first time, that accruals aren't typically prepared until after the first payroll. While his reasoning was scattered, I begrudgingly accepted this fact and confirmed that they would be ready by the next payroll. He assured me they would and I disseminated that information to my employees. On the day of submittal for our first payroll, I received numerous calls (at least 5), from three different individuals. Two of which I had never spoken to. The first person literally just called to ask if I had any questions for my implementation manager. I did, and when I asked them, the only response was 'I'll let your implementation manager know'. What a waste of my time. I would have contacted ****** myself. Two more calls were from a woman asking how the first payroll was going. I had to tell her both times that I would not know until I began processing it, and that wouldn't occur until 1p my time. She called a third time, at 1p HER time (we are an hour behind), and left a message to again ask how it was going. These calls were very disruptive to my day and completely futile. I made it through our first payroll just fine. The interface is very intuitive and easy to use. This aspect of Paylocity is the ONLY one that I am satisfied with. After processing the first payroll, I noticed that our SUI rates are inaccurate. I explicitly stated, on the implementation paperwork, both the 2014 and 2015 rates. Again, ******'s reasoning as to why this was incorrect was scattered. It should be noted that there were other, less significant, data entry errors that I also had to correct. By the time of submittal of our 2nd payroll, our PTO accruals, 4 weeks after providing the necessary information, were still NOT prepared; despite (1) being told they would be, and (2) having paid $200 for the Time Off Accruals on our first invoice, paid by direct debit on 1/5/2015, invoice #XXXXXXXXX. It is now 2½ months since we began our relationship with Paylocity. Our PTO accruals are still NOT prepared. I continue to send emails to multiple people in the company, without any response or resolution. I have requested a refund for payment of services not rendered, but have received no resolution or response. Further, I have sent multiple requests for assistance is setting up HSA deductions and deposits, without any response or resolution. I am now taking a last-resort escalation avenue of having my concerns heard and issues addressed by filing a complaint with BBB.

Desired Settlement: Provide a refund for services paid for but not rendered. Revise your billing processes such that services are paid for after received, not before. Provide assistance as requested for HSA deductions and deposits. Train your employees to be professional, competent, responsive, and accurate. If you already have an employee that meets all of these criteria, please transfer my account to them.

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 5, 2015/03/09) */ Contacted client regarding concerns. Client is satisfied with solution and will close the complaint.

10/7/2013 Problems with Product/Service | Read Complaint Details

Additional Notes

Complaint: I'm not able to get a copy of my paycheck stub. I've called ********* about 30 times in two days to resolve the issue. Their Customer Service refuse to fix the problem. A Customer Service Manage lied to me. He told me he would call me back in 20 min & he did. Yet he said then he can't resolve the problem until he talks to someone around lunch time. Three days later he has refused to call me back. HE LIED!

Desired Settlement: I just want my paycheck stub.

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 5, 2013/09/19) */ Contact Name and Title: ********* Sr Client Svc M Contact Phone: (************* Contact Email: ******************** We at ********* strive to provide the best customer service available in the industry. We manage very sensitive information and as such have agreements with our clients to only speak to approved company contacts. The gentlemen in question is an employee for a valued client of ours and is not one of the approved company contacts that we are allowed to speak with. Although we were sympathetic to the concerns of the gentlemen, we followed protocol and reported the problem to our client in an attempt to resolve. We have this protocol in place to protect the data that we manage and are confident that we took the appropriate steps to resolving the gentlemen's concerns. Our valued client appreciated us taking these measures to protect their data. Final Consumer Response /* (3000, 7, 2013/09/26) */ (The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.) I did finally get my paycheck stub 4 days later. Late but thank you. On that issue it is resolved. The customer Service Manager with ********* has yet to keep his word by calling me back. Integrity in a business means keeping your word. If you say you are going to call someone back. Call them back even if your not able to help them. On that issue ********* has poor customer service. The ********* website forced me to change my password that I didn't request to be changed. My employer had my password reset. 1. I tried the new password & it didn't work. 2. So I tried my own password & again the ********* website locked me out. 3. I tried resetting my own password & it worked. 4. Doing what ********* said didn't work. Having my employer rest the password didn't work. Somehow I was able to get through on my own which I still don't understand. On that issue: CONFUSED? I was told by the owner of the company I work for that ********* threatened to drop them as a client. I was then threatened to be fired as a result. On that issue threats by ********* is unprofessional. Threats never solve problems. To solve problems you find out what is wrong and fix it. No one from ********* has showed us how to use their website to get our paycheck stubs. I was told by another sales rep. from *********: They the sales rep. is to train ALL Administrators, HR director, & managers. So that the company can train the employees how to use the ********* website. My manager was NEVER trained by a ********* Sales Rep. Therefore as a result we have this problem. Please have someone from ********* to show up in person to explain by showing us first hand how to use their website. Thank you for your time. Final Business Response /* (4000, 9, 2013/10/07) */ ********* takes our clients privacy very seriously and we are working with our client to address their employee so that they understand the importance of data sensitivity. We complied with Mr. Smith as best we could without exposing sensitive information. This is going to be addressed between the client and their employee. Our client is in complete agreement in the manner in which we handled this situation.
