OVERVIEW

New Content added for 2021! Do you feel as though you’ve been thrown into the deep end of payroll without a rope?  This webinar will help.  State laws govern paycheck rules and may supersede Federal requirements. To understand the differences in these laws, the payroll professional needs a guide to payday rules and how they may vary from state to state.  This webinar will touch on such topics as final paychecks, requirements around vacation and sick pay, frequency of paychecks, minimum wage, late or missing pay, the Earned Income Tax Credit, and legal deductions from pay.  We will look at how remote work affects state taxation for employees; many new rules have been put in place to cover remote work due to pandemic closings.  We will cover what happens when wages are garnished, and which types of garnishments states allow.  We will also review how to determine which takes precedence: state or federal law.  If you are a multi-state employer, or even if all your employees are in one state, these laws are important to any payroll professional.  To ensure that all employees are treated fairly, payroll teams need to be in the know about rules that affect payments to those employees.

WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND?

Are you new to payroll processing?  Or have you recently been promoted to a new position with more responsibilities?  How has the pandemic changed your workers’ locations?  Have state withholding requirements changed?  Have you added new states for reporting? Are you up to date on all the rules for paychecks issued in your state?  Do you know the requirements for employee salary payments in all your US locations?  How do you handle final pay for a separated employee?  Do you offer direct deposit – can you require direct deposit for your employees?  What items must appear on employee pay stubs?  Are there different rules for each state where you have employees?  For answers to these and other questions, take this webinar and receive valuable information that will help you be compliant in all states where you have employees. This webinar contains updated content for 2021!
