Overcoming Unusual Pay Situations

On Demand Webinar Credits APA (CPP/FPC), HR Certification Institute, NASBA, AIPB, SHRM

January 15 at 1:00 - 2:30 pm EST

Gain a better understanding of laws that affect how you handle all kinds of pay situations.

As much as payroll professionals like to think our job is about producing a paycheck each pay period and making sure employees have accurate pay each pay period, it is not always that easy. Employees get overpaid, they end employment with our companies for all kinds of different reasons and we need to be prepared to handle these situations and how to properly handle them according to state and federal laws.

A review of employee terminations and final pay requirements will be discussed in detail from the federal and state level. All types of terminations from death to voluntary terminations will be discussed so you will have a better understanding of payment timing, methods and taxation. Overpayments and laws around taxation and recouping funds from both active and terminated employees will also be discussed in detail.
