On-demand pay, also known as early wage access, is a 21st century phenomenon. Allowing employees to receive a portion of their earned wages in advance, as opposed to receiving the entire amount on a designated payday, is changing payroll practice all over the country. What is payroll’s role in defining and creating best practice in this new area? We’ll look at current practice as well as questions for the future of Early Wage Access (EWA). The webinar will help attendees determine if the process is appropriate for their company. Regardless of the size of your company, you’ll be able to learn something about this new trend by taking this webinar!
Do you believe in instant gratification? Are you involved in the “gig” economy? If you answered yes to either of those questions, you are probably already involved in EWA. “Early Wage Access” is a way for workers to receive pay for hours already worked prior to a regularly scheduled payday. Perhaps there’s an emergency and an employee needs immediate cash. Many workers live paycheck to paycheck, and a cash shortfall can cause serious damage to their day-to-day lives. If you have part-time hourly, or minimum wage employees or any other type of employment, you may be faced with this issue soon. Perhaps you have tipped employees and you’d like to manage the tip process differently. Regardless, this webinar will give you insight into this new payroll area.
