Employee Final Pay Rules: HR Rights And Obligations For Successful Separations
|Date / Time:
Whether it's an unexpected resignation or an immediate termination, the clock is ticking on your employee's final paycheck. And if you delay or get it wrong, you could face strict waiting-time penalties or even a wage &hour class action.
At the end of employment, employers may find themselves asking many questions regarding final pay: Is accrued vacation considered part of final pay? Does it matter whether the employment ended voluntarily or involuntarily? Can you withhold the final paycheck until the employee returns company property? Can you deduct from final pay for theft or damages?
The best way to avoid costly errors is have answers these tricky questions and more BEFORE an employment relationship ends. Get up-to-date on your final pay obligations and make a clean break with a departing employee.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
