To all our clients and partners,
We are here to assist our clients during this complicated time and hope everyone is staying safe!
The TEAM Companies, LLC (TTC) is fully operational and providing all our services as usual. While ensuring there is no disruption to business, we are protecting our workforce by implementing our remote working plan and using limited personnel in all office locations. In cases where cities or states that we operate in require following a shelter-in-place plan, we remain fully functional. Please note that you can continue to reach your TTC rep during standard business hours using their TTC email address and phone number.
We know many employees have questions about their taxes, workers’ compensation and unemployment insurance. Federal and state governments are hard at work updating their policies. TTC is tracking all regulatory changes and will be ready to implement updates as required.
Please see below for additional helpful information and resources. Feel free to email our Client Services team at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. Our workers’ compensation department can be reached at email@example.com.
We will continue updating this post as additional resources become available.
During this time, it is more beneficial than ever for clients to use TTC’s technology solutions to streamline processes and reduce reliance on paper. TTC Online is a web-based onboarding and time card system designed specifically for commercial production.
For advertising clients, TEAM Online Client System (TOCS) helps manage business affairs functions like estimates, talent payments and rights management. For tours clients, TOCS streamlines the payment process for crew, musicians and singers on tour.
Employees who want instant access to paystubs or W-2s should register for an account in our Employee Self Service (ESS) portal at ess.ttconline.com.

- New York Paid Sick Leave
Employees can waive coverage of New York Paid Family Leave if:
- They regularly work 20 hours or more per week, but won’t be in employment with that employer for 26 consecutive weeks; or
- They regularly work fewer than 20 hours per week and will not work 175 days in a 52-week period.
If employees meet this criteria and wish to opt out, they can do so by completing a Paid Family Leave waiver. Employers must provide a waiver to those who qualify for one. Employers should keep completed waivers on file. Employees may voluntarily revoke their waiver at any time. If their schedule changes such that they no longer qualify for a waiver, the waiver will be automatically revoked. If the waiver is revoked, employers may begin taking payroll deductions and may retroactively collect deductions from the date the employee signed the waiver.
