Payroll Operations During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Ensure this already difficult time doesn't become impossible due to regulatory violations.

The COVID-19 pandemic has put employee health and well-being at the forefront of human resource management. Although government has been, and is expected to be understanding in this matter, this is not a time where all missteps in human resource and payroll management will be forgiven. So if you don't use those overpriced third-party payroll processors, it's all on you. The DOL, USCIS, IRS and other agencies have issued reports and reminders about conducting payroll operations during this anxious time. Learn how to educate your workforce, manage both the closure or continuance of your operations, guide management and your workforce in using resources available, and keeping payroll running as smoothly as you already do.
