Don't Mess With the U.S. DOL: Payroll Compliance Strategies for 2020

Learn what it takes to keep your payroll practices compliant and avoid legal pitfalls.

Categorizing and compensating workers in accordance with applicable law, and in a manner that will satisfy the Wage and Hour Division of the U.S. Department of Labor, has always been a tricky proposition. Employers must be on top of expanding state and local laws regarding salary thresholds for exempt employees, wage deductions, paid sick time, direct deposit, and payroll cards in order to structure policies and procedures properly. This topic will help those responsible for payroll obligations to understand the expanding regulations regarding compensation of employees, as well as best practices for implementing company policies in line with such regulations. This material explores different types of leaves of absence, and how they affect an employer's payroll obligations. The information will put employers in a better position to ensure their compensation and leave policies meet current legal requirements, as well as best practices.
