L.A. Dodgers Use UltiPro to Help Resolve Payroll, HR Challenges

BY: APA Staff | 05/11/18

Ultimate Software, a provider of human capital management (HCM) solutions in the cloud, announced that the Los Angeles Dodgers, a U.S. professional baseball team and a member club of Major League Baseball (MLB), is using UltiPro to help the organization achieve goals related to compliance, scaling growth, and workforce intelligence.

The baseball organization oversees approximately 1,200 seasonal game-day staff and 375 full-time employees, including scouts in 27 states. With a fluctuating and traveling workforce, the organization handles a number of HR and payroll challenges, including managing multi-jurisdiction tax withholdings for player salaries and scaling its workforce at various times throughout the year.

Eric Hernandez, Vice President of Finance for the Dodgers, said the MLB industry is known for complicated payroll issues such as players living and working in different jurisdictions.

“Prior to UltiPro, when our team visited an unfamiliar jurisdiction, our payroll department was responsible for setting up a tax ID and filing with the right city, state, county, or tax authority,” Hernandez said. “With UltiPro’s out-of-the-box features for managing compliance, the technology provides guidance on identifying the correct payroll tax rates and updates so we no longer need to contract with a third-party tax service.”
