Employee Pay Workshop: Compliance Advice for 2014
Paying employees correctly is your most important — and legally risky — responsibility. Consider these questions:
- Can you eliminate paper paychecks and force employees into direct deposit?
- When is it illegal to set a use-it-or-lose-it policy on vacation time?
- What’s the rule for delivering final paychecks for employees who quit, are fired or even those who die?
On Tuesday, July 29, discover what you must do (and not do) to stay in compliance with federal and state pay laws in 2014. Join payroll expert Alice Gilman, Esq., the editor of Payroll Legal Alert for Employee Pay Workshop: Compliance Advice for 2014.
Important: This webinar is especially timely because state and federal regulators are taking a MUCH closer look these days at how you pay employees. Last year alone, the U.S. Department of Labor secured more than $250 million for employees in back pay. State regulators are racking up equally impressive hauls.
Use this webinar as a checklist to make sure your pay policies are in total compliance with state and federal law. You will learn answers to questions like:
- Can you make direct deposit mandatory? Discover what the federal Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and state payday laws say about mandatory direct deposit policies. Learn five simple ways to encourage employees to voluntarily sign up for direct deposit, plus the three key traps that will sabotage your goal of 100% electronic pay.
- When can you deduct pay for breakage, cash shortages and discipline? Discover the eight indispensable policy pointers to keep your company toeing the legal line when making loss-related deductions from employees’ pay.
- How can you legally pay employees using paycards? Don’t make the mistake of other employers and become lawsuit bait when paying workers via payroll debit cards. Learn the specifics of the Federal Reserve’s Regulation E, and the six steps to keep you and your paycard program out of court.
- How (and how quickly) must you pay departing workers? Learn the ins and outs of termination pay, including step-by-step instructions on creating a voluntary termination pay workflow, and the nine dos and don’ts for involuntary terminations.
- When must you pay for sick days? Find out what the new state and municipal mandatory paid sick day laws require. Hint: Even the smallest employers aren’t off the hook for mandatory sick days.
- What’s a “wage theft” law—and why should you care? Such laws place substantial burdens on employers and are the latest twist in state payday laws.
- Plus much more … and answers to your questions from a true payroll expert, Alice Gilman.
Even one payroll mistake can damage your standing in the office — and possibly your career. It’s important to spot the holes in your employee pay compliance before the feds or state agencies do. Make sure you’re up to speed on the latest employee pay laws and regulations by joining Alice on July 29.
