Self-Auditing Your California Payroll Process

Make sure your California Payroll Processes are in compliance with state law.

Many employers doing business in California administer payroll systems that incorporate practices that violate California law. In fact, an estimated eight to 12 new wage and hour class action lawsuits are filed each day in California. Nearly all of these lawsuits focus on one or more of the practices covered in this material. These simple mistakes, embedded in payroll systems for years, can and do cost employers millions. This topic helps the persons responsible for human resources and payroll management to identify the costly mistakes in their payroll systems that drive class action litigation. The content also explains new developments in laws impacting payroll compliance, and explains how to fix problems without admitting or compounding liability.
