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 and hour class action.
Just Google "final pay" and a slew of websites for attorneys representing employees will pop up. Many a plaintiff attorney has built an extremely successful practice going after employers for wage and hour violations. Don't line their pockets by making common gaffes when issuing the final paychecks within your organization.

|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.
