|A Day That Brings Clarity To Your Payroll Gray Areas!
What you don't know can hurt you. That's never more true than when handling payroll. The first step to complying with regulations is understanding them.
That's why you'll begin your day with a crash course in payroll's legal basics. You'll find out what areas fall under state, federal, and joint regulation, and learn how to avoid the often staggering penalties and fines of non-compliance.
Handling payroll sounds like a simple proposition. Employees work at a certain rate of pay. You take out taxes and give them the rest of what they've earned. If only it were that clear cut. Regulations regarding special benefits and other payments turn a simple proposition into a legal landmine.
Armed with the strategies you'll gain at this seminar, you'll handle payroll accurately, legally, and with complete confidence.
Every employee's paycheck presents a different challenge. After this seminar, you'll know which forms to use when and, most important, how to keep your company out of hot water with the DOL and state agencies. It's their job to catch you in a mistake. Together, we'll make sure that doesn't happen.
