Top Payroll Questions for 2019: Seven Issues to Watch in the Coming Year

Duration: 90 minutes

The one thing Payroll professionals never want to say to their CFO (or even to employees coming to them with questions) is, “I don’t know” or “I was unaware of that.” In this webinar we’ll discuss seven separate but important topics that are currently burning up the payroll boards with questions. You’ll get the information you need to deal with these common challenges so you won’t be caught off guard. (more details below)

* Approved for 1.5 recertification credit hour through HRCI & SHRM.


WHY ATTEND

It’s a Payroll person’s job to have answers about all things related to pay. Your credibility is key because the people in your organization need absolute confidence that pay is being managed with precision.

Unfortunately, that’s easier said than done. Workplace situations and regulations can change from day to day. That means what you need to know, and do, is a moving target. What happens when an employee unexpectedly quits, is terminated or sadly, passes away? What if regulators pass a sick leave ordinance and you’re not sure if your sick leave policy is compliant? Or what if you realize that the correct FICA taxes weren’t collected on the employee you terminated last week? You need answers fast.

This information-packed session with payroll guru Vicki Lambert, CPP will give you the facts you need about some of today’s most commonly asked questions so you’ll stay ahead of the curve for the payroll challenges you’re likely to face in 2019.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Here’s what will be covered:

  • Salary level test: What is the latest situation from the DOL on the old Obama lawsuit and the new RFI from the Trump Administration for exempt employees and how it has impacted the states?
  • Sick leave laws: Who has passed one? Who is now prevented from passing one?
  • Mailing paychecks: If I mail the employee’s regular paycheck when is he considered paid? When I mail it or when he gets it?
  • Using FIT to pay for FICA on terminated employees: I failed to withhold FICA on a fringe benefit and the employee is now terminated, can I just take it from FIT?
  • Deceased employee wages including child support: Does child support come out of a deceased employee’s wages? What taxes must be withheld? What do I report in year of death as opposed to the year after death?
  • Payday loans or voluntary wage assignments: if we get one, do we have to honor it? What if the employee doesn’t want us to?
  • Going Paperless: Who requires electronic filing? Who still accepts paper?
