2018. ADP acquired workforce management service WorkMarket



Payroll provider ADP acquired WorkMarket, a startup that specializes in workforce management software that operates across a wide range of employees and contractors. The software aims to create a kind of unified interface for managing an extended workforce that can include a variety of workers with different employment status, from contractors and freelancers to full-time employees. WorkMarket includes payment systems, management for extended employee networks, as well as a marketplace for piecing together a workforce that can fill the gaps for a company that’s looking to operate outside of the traditional range that full-time employees might operate. For ADP, it would seem to give the company that traditionally specializes in payroll another tool to convince enterprises to use it as part of a larger system of workforce products.




2015. Payroll giant ADP cut off Zenefits small business clients



Corporate payroll company ADP cut off Zenefits small business clients using the ADP RUN payroll system from sharing data with Zenefits, because Zenefits was, “pulling sensitive information, including unmasked Social Security numbers and employee banking information, in a manner that did not comply with ADP’s standards for data security.” Zenefits called out ADP for being unfair and said that this action came without warning to its clients. Zenefits offers HR services to small and medium businesses and works with several third-party partners to provide things like payroll and insurance. ADP is one of many companies Zenefits integrates with to provide payroll processing for these businesses.
