Duration: 60 minutes

Managing supplemental pay is complex. But get something wrong, and your organization could face penalties for everything from failing to withhold the correct tax to wage theft.

This webinar teaches payroll pros how to avoid the costs and get it right every time. (more details below)


WHY ATTEND

Overtime, bonuses, severance, fringe benefits—supplemental pay is a crucial component of employee compensation, but it has its own set of rules. That makes managing supplemental pay a complex challenge where mistakes are easy to make yet very costly to fix.

This training program will equip you with a step-by-step system for getting supplemental pay right every time.

You’ll learn how to quickly distinguish between supplemental wage payments, regular wage payments, and compensation that falls outside both categories. You’ll understand the methods used to compute withholding for each category, and see the application of the rules and methods to specific payments and situations. And you’ll learn how to checklist all your compliance requirements to make sure your organization stays out of legal and regulatory hot water.

It’s a fast-paced and detailed session that delivers the information essential for effectively managing supplemental wage payments—for new payroll managers and seasoned pros alike.
