Why Should You Attend:

Properly administering an employee’s compensation is not limited to just calculating the hourly rate times the number of hours worked. That is actually just the beginning of the path to compliance. A path that can be fraught with pitfalls and potholes. From ensuring that the gross wages are correct, through taxation and finally method of payment, every step can be a misstep into the mud and mire of noncompliance. The payroll rules and regulations in today’s world are complex and constantly changing. Gross wages can even change each payroll as employees receive fringe benefits, business expense reimbursements or prizes and rewards. Which to tax and report and which to just report, or which to not bother about can get you right down that payroll pit.

If paying employees by check is old hat in your company, then you need to know what the latest regulations are for direct deposits and paycards. Once the employee has the “money in hand” the state may require that they be given an explanation of how they were paid, or in other words, a paystub. And when an employee does leave your company, make sure you know your legal obligations as to that final paycheck.

Some of the compliance regulations payroll must adhere to in avoiding the pitfalls were written in the 1930’s while others are as new as yesterday’s Congressional vote. Some are in a constant state of flux while others are as constant as the sun and never change. No matter what the status you want to avoid falling down that noncompliance payroll pit. Even a slight trip on a payroll pothole can lead to thousands of dollars in penalties. Join payroll expert Vicki M. Lambert, CPP as she explains how to avoid the potholes, missteps and deep pits of processing paychecks - from gross wages to final paychecks and more.
