Course Description/Agenda


Payroll law has become so complex and ever-changing that it’s easier to make mistakes. That’s why we developed this unique workshop—to show you exactly where you are vulnerable and, more importantly, how you can fix the problem.

After your training, you’ll know how to identify common mistakes that get most companies hauled into court—and ensure 100 percent accuracy and compliance. You’ll also cover special payroll situations like garnishments and levies, involuntary deductions and other benefit administration challenges.

When you return to the office, you’ll be armed with the knowledge you need to self-audit your processes, clean up your records and ensure every employee, contractor, intern or other "special case" is classified, paid and reported correctly—saving you from hassles, headaches and potential lawsuits down the road.
