Overview of the webinar

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, late or missing pay, and legal deductions from pay. We’ll cover what happens when wages are garnished, and which types of garnishments states allow. We’ll 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.
