About This Course:Training For Your Payroll Recordkeeping Requirements
The Payroll Department creates thousands of records each year. Unfortunately, there are many agencies and a multitude of rules, regulations, and paperwork requirements to comply with. And to make matters worse, different agencies have different requirements for different records - and employers must not only comply with all of them, but keep accurate records!
With all those records around, it's tempting to have a big clean-out day. But if you destroy the wrong document, you could be destroying your career.
So...if your payroll records "desk" looks like a hurricane just blew through it, your payroll recordkeeping "system" is non-existent, or if your basement is stacked to the ceiling with payroll records, let us help you organize them in a way that inspires confidence - and compliance.What You'll Learn:
