Your Payroll Problems Solved: New DOMA Rules, Travel Pay, Garnishments and More
|Date / Time:
Payroll law is complex, confusing … and becoming more legally dangerous.
Make one simple mistake, and you're sure to hear about it from employees … the CEO … and possibly the IRS.
Discover how to guard against those risks by understanding the biggest "pain points" for payroll professionals—and how to avoid them. In this popular webinar, led by a true payroll-law expert, you'll learn concrete, practical answers to your questions on:
Travel-Time Pay. When must nonexempt employees be paid—if at all—for time spent in planes, trains and automobiles? Learn the 4 situations in which you must ALWAYS pay for travel time. And discover how to save a bundle on OT costs with two simple changes to your travel-time policy.
Benefit & Tax Changes Based on New Post-DOMA Rulings. The aftermath of the U.S. Supreme Court's 2013 decision striking a key section of the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) continues to be felt by employers and payroll departments around the country. Federal courts are overturning states' same-sex marriage bans almost every day. And the IRS and Department of Labor continue to issue new guidance on everything from 401(k)s to the FMLA. What's this mean for your organization? Get the scoop on these fast-changing implications.
Smartphone "Work." Thousands of employers have been stung with overtime claims from "off-duty" employees who say they worked on their smartphones. Learn the common overtime traps and the 2 exceptions to the rule.
Common W-4 Mistakes. Are all those W-4s still valid? To prevent IRS scrutiny and avoidable penalties, learn the 3 circumstances that require employees to absolutely file new W-4s. Plus, discover the 5 situations in which you should immediately reject a W-4, and what to do when the IRS sends you a letter voiding an employee's W-4.
Garnishments and Levies. Learn how to legally handle garnishments, when federal and state law fit together (and when they conflict) and the mistakes to avoid when computing the amount to withhold.
Bonus topic: Unclaimed Wages. What if a terminated employee doesn't pick up his last paycheck? Or an active employee doesn't tell you she lost her check? Hint: You can't just keep these wages. Learn when a paycheck is considered "abandoned" … what state reporting is necessary … your recordkeeping responsibilities … and how the decision by the Social Security Administration and IRS to retire their longtime letter-forwarding services affects your unclaimed-paycheck duties.
In just 75 minutes, you'll dramatically increase your working knowledge on all of these important payroll issues. Plus, ask your own question of our payroll expert.
Stop wondering if you're obeying the law … and start complying with confidence!

|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.
