The Complete Course on Payroll Management
A two-day workshop with up-to-date legal info on complex issues and everything you ever wanted to know.
Ask anyone in your organization what they think you do.
The answer? Its simple. Multiply my hours by my salary, subtract
the tax and write a check. If only it was that easy.
Youve got every employee from the CEO to contract
workers depending on you. And each paycheck brings its own special challenge
... the technician who has a company car, the secretary who worked overtime,
the employee with multiple court orders or the supervisor requesting FMLA.
Plus, youre the buffer zone between your organization
and the DOL, the IRS and other federal and state agencies. You have to
stay current on the latest forms, laws and practices and deal with a host
of forms from A to Z. Make one mistake and you and your company are left
open to expensive legal consequences and audits.
When you consider that the greatest percentage of your companys
revenues goes to employee salaries, that makes you the biggest accountant,
asset controller and tax consultant your company has. Add all this up
and you have one tall order for your job duties.
Complete Course on Payroll Management is a one-stop
shop for the Payroll Professional. In two information-packed days, youll
get straight answers about ...
- Statutory compliance: a heads-up on the changing implications
of the FLSA, the Wage and Hour Laws, FMLA, COBRA and more
- Dealing with multi-state issues
- Deciding which benefits are taxable items
- Reading court orders and translating them into prioritized
- Record-keeping: from IRS forms to documentation musts

your organization out of the penalty zone. Well answer questions
about outsourcing your payroll process, keeping your records in perfect
fitness and the future e-payroll options.
Training opportunities for Payroll Professionals do not
get better than this so dont miss out. Spaces are filling
fast, so register today!
Im looking forward to seeing you at the workshop.
