Apparently if you get hired in a choice location/super center you can pile up unscheduled unpaid absences and not be disciplined or prevented from moving to another job. Another STELLAR “management” approach ADP. Giving you my best Nancy Pelosi golf clap.

OP -There are many exceptions for the supercenter associates due to the contract/agreement with local and federal taxing authorities to keep a certain number in headcount in those offices (improve the areas unemployment rating) to receive the tax credits/kickbacks/refunds.
The loopy-loopholes are many. Absent but still active associates in the headcount.
Amazing how some people are so nieve to think HR is there for the employees. Take it from someone who worked at adp for over 30 years and was in a mgmt position, HR is there to support mgmt PERIOD! If you don’t believe this try going to HR and see what happens then reply back to this post so I can say I told you so!
"HR represent Management, it will become a CLM (Career Limiting Move), one can be assured they will be labeled as a problematic employee and your thoughts of any career advancement dashed."
Same with EE surveys. Not as anonymous as you wish it was.
A poster responded with advice to seek HR for help and assistance.

Leadership uses the lower associates (not just lower management) as pawns to do their low-class shenanigans. Who better to do them than the lowest paid and those scratching for ADP notoriety? Smart leaders USE lower classes. Always have. Always will. The question is who and how are being used? Hmmmm.
Ethical? ADP? Snicker snicker......
ADP these days is as ethical as Congress.....
The top management of a company is always responsible for everything. If they have scummy lower management and employees, then they are are at fault for having them there in the first place. It is top management's responsibility to maintain high ethical standards throughout their organization, to know what is going on everywhere and take action as appropriate. If they are like a rudderless ship that doesn't know where it is going, then the management team is inept and must take the blame for incompetence and poor ethics.
Unfortunately I see the same thing, this idea that it’s just all lower management is silly, who manages them ? Who is ultimately responsible?
Standards are applied haphazardly, favoritisms is rampant sorry to say.
ADP has highly ethical leadership? That's a good one. I'm trying very hard not to laugh. I can't believe someone posted that. That has to be a joke, right?
I believe ADP has highly ethical leadership. Now some of the lower level associates are shady-brady and lead many games of cloak and dagger.
Thankfully, most in senior leadership roles see through the muddied waters and learn the true character of the Bradys (Not the Gregs, Peters, Marcia and Jan’s if yesterADPyears(.
I highly doubt that an entire ‘Super Center’ is practicing this policy. Sounds to me like an incident or two that is breeding disgruntled water cooler chatter. If you believe something is rampant or mildly out of order you should alert HR; and please don’t claim they’re in on it and you’ll be targeted; let them know you’re documenting it yourself for protection. It’s possible that this is either a lazy manager or that something is going on with this employee and that its really only between the manager and them, not you. If you’re just blowing off some steam I understand. If things are really that bad there are two options, stay or leave..... ok, I cant wait to see the haters because I presented a different scenario. Everyone have a lovely day!
Managers are too busy ranking tenured employees before the next wave of cuts so they don’t have time to read policies and manage people.
I agree with the person who replied to the OP. ADP expects hard work from their employees. Employees don't get away with anything. If they don't perform they are easily fired.
And about the experienced workers that were eliminated. Yes, ADP suddenly discovered that they are too expensive and had/have to be done away with. New, cheap employees can do the same work for a fraction of the cost. What the new workers are inexperienced and don't know how to service clients? So they learn it and then do it. It is the employees' responsibility to do the jobs that they were hired to do, right? So management throws in some training and calls it the best most comprehensive training there is. Just a little bit of hand holding for decorum's sake. What, the employees still can't do their jobs?
Oh, my! I guess ADP management blew it. They didn't know it was their responsibility to know how complex the jobs are at ADP. I guess you get what you pay for. Apparently, the original employees were not overpaid after all.
I would have to doubt that this is true. ADP expects you to work, and work hard, for your money. I worked there many years and never saw unscheduled absences accepted. It is unlikely that this would change whether you are in a super center, or not. That said, I would not have expected the purging of experienced employees under the guise that they are to expensive. Bottom line, this is a service industry and you cannot provide service if employees are not at work.
