So what I have found out is that payroll companies are bound by the clients standards. Example.  The payroll company does not have any DIRECT policies associated to them if they are private. Public they are bound to SOX (Thank you masnrock).  But if they are private then they have no DIRECT policies.  What they do have are the policies bound to there clients.  If there clients are HIPAA/HITECH clients then they must abide by those same regulations since they are storing PII information that is governed by HITECH regulations and so on.  If they do business with clients in California, Massachusetts, or Nevada then there are state polices.  There are Federal laws also they must abide by.  I have attached the research info I found based on both of your responses.  Thank you for jogging my memory.
