We make it easy to deliver word-class human resources, benefits administration, and payroll services.

Human resources, benefits administration, and payroll is far more involved for county and municipal government entities than most people realize. Collective bargaining agreements (CBA) and union contracts can determine core policies for different jobs, pay frequency, overtime rules, call-in and call-back rules, step increases, vacation policies, standard work hours, and more. Unicorn HRO’s platform automates the calculation of Chapter 78 insurance premiums and automatically generates a deduction.

Managing these aspects of organization is no easy task. Unicorn HRO has specialized in providing human capital management services to county and municipal governments. We have the experience and expertise to manage the intricacies associated with human resource, benefits, and payroll operations.

Unicorn HRO’s platform can support a shared services processing.

Our iCON platform can be configured to suit your unique needs, especially complex payrolls with full- and part-time employees, unionized police forces, fire departments, public works, county clerks, and overtime rules. Additionally, our human capital management specialists can provide guidance to ensure compliance with the ever-changing tax laws and industry regulations.

“It’s imperative for New Jersey’s 565 municipalities to collaboratively pursue shared services so they can operate more efficiently and ensure better delivery of services for our residents.”

– New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy
