At 118 Pizza Hut restaurants in South Carolina, North Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee and Virginia, employees give their fingerprints instead of ID numbers to clock in and out for the day. The restaurants are using Digital­Persona fingerprint readers for transactions like overrides, voids and discount authorizations.

Year-end can be a hectic time for HR and payroll professionals. Accom­­plish these year-end tasks now, and the last few months of 2011 will run much more smoothly.
Question: Our company will soon begin outsourcing the payroll to a new third-party provider. It has a feature that allows em­­ployees to view their check stubs and W-2s by logging onto its website. We were told that the company will be saving a bundle because employees can now access their W-2s online. Does the IRS allow this?
Question: As part of our year-end process, we look back to the preceding year just to make sure that everything was wrapped up correctly. We found that an employee who worked for two divisions of the company earned a total of $10,000. However, both divisions filed separate W-2s for him reporting the same $10,000, for a total of $20,000. Subsequently, one of the divisions filed a W-2c form to correct its error. The employee has now informed us that $0 wages have been credited to his earnings account. What’s the best way for us to reinstate his earnings?
Two nifty tools: one that helps business travelers get more done, and one that helps executives get more done by avoiding travel.
Most businesses hire at least some independent contractors. Since you’ll probably need to issue far fewer Forms 1099-MISC than W-2s, it’s easier to get the ball rolling on your 1099-MISC year-end procedures. Here’s what you need to know.

At work, numbers speak volumes. If you can’t show, quantitatively, that something is improving, then how can you really know it’s improving? It’s not surprising, then, that more admins are being asked to set SMART goals—specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and timely goals—to be evaluated against.

Question: What should employers do if the only ID number they have for an employee is an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN), and not a Social Security Number (SSN)?
Employees are entitled to their wages—and they can’t be forced (or persuaded) to turn over tax refunds to an employer.
Q. Over the past six months, we have made several attempts to mail a former employee her last paycheck by certified mail. We believe we have the correct address because we mailed her other items by regular mail during this period and none has been returned. What legal obligations do we have, if any, to get this check to her?
