Employee Retention Tax Credit Investigation

Was your business short-changed with the Employee Retention Tax Credit?

RPWB is investigating third-party payroll processors for how they handled administering the federal Employee Retention Credit, also referred to as ERC, which was part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act following the COVID-19 pandemic.

We believe some businesses may be owed more money, including interest, than they received from the payroll processing companies who filed the relevant Employee Retention Credit forms (IRS Form 941) with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) on their behalf.

If your company utilized a third-party payroll processor or professional employer organization (PEO) to receive the Employee Retention Credit, please contact us using the form below so we can determine whether you are owed additional money from your payroll processor. There is no cost for this initial legal review by our team of attorneys. If litigation is filed and is successful, you may be eligible for additional compensation beyond the amount owed to you by your payroll provider.

We are specifically seeking businesses that used any of the following payroll processors/third-party HR services: Vensure Employer Services, Employers’ Innovative Network, Greenleaf HR, Surge Resources, National PEO, National PEO Payroll Management Company, ABS Entertainment Payroll CA, Resource Management, Employers Resource Management Company, Workflex, PrismHR, Epay Systems, Avitus Group Payroll Services, Alliance Group, Star Source Staffing, Empower HR, Quality Business Solutions, Offsite HR II, Solid Business Solutions. Even if your particular HR or payroll provider is not listed, we still encourage you to contact us for a no-cost, no obligation case review.

Your help with this investigation is crucial and may result in other businesses also receiving the money that is owed to them. If your company utilized a third-party provider to file for the Employee Retention Tax Credit, please fill out the form below to get started.

    What is the Employee Retention Tax Credit?

    In March 2020, Congress enacted the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act followed by the Coronavirus Response and Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021. In order to

    encourage businesses to retain employees during the economic downturn, the CARES Act created the Employee Retention Tax Credit for qualified employers. The Employee Tax Credit is a refundable tax credit of 50 percent of wages paid in a calendar year from March 13, 2020 to December 31st, 2021.

    How do I know if I was short-changed with my Employee Retention Tax Credit by my payroll provider?

    There are several factors relating to the Employee Retention Tax Credit that make it difficult for an employer to know whether they received the correct amount from the third-party payroll or HR provider, especially because there are delays in when those ERC payments are received from the IRS. Those factors include whether the credit was applied to future tax liabilities or was requested as a refund, when the monies for the tax credit were received by the third-party processor, and when the money was disbursed to your business. Our attorneys will review all of this information and will let you know if we believe you were short-changed.
