Webinar Price Details


Does your company have a written payroll procedure manual?  Perhaps you have a vendor-supplied manual. 

Does it cover all issues, or only the system-driven ones?  What about payroll policy as it involves your company? Make sure that you are ready for all contingencies by keeping your procedure manual up-to-date. Every payroll team or one-person "team" needs a reference for payroll answers. Is there a precedent for the issue you face? If so, how was it handled before?  Beginning with existing documentation - or determining that it doesn't exist-will help you to begin the process. 

Whether you use a vendor-based system, an internal company system or manage the payroll manually, documentation is essential to ensure that all payroll employees and management can understand the process. If a payroll person is out, a replacement needs to understand how to process in that person's absence. 

Written references are crucial in keeping payroll processes timely and accurate.

Why you should Attend

How do you avoid problems with your payroll process? One way is to ensure that your payroll team understands the process and all the steps needed to successfully complete each payroll cycle. 

Written procedures are a big step in accomplishing that goal. In this webinar tips for creating process documents will be given, as well as ideas for defining the scope of your document. 

Have you identified the existing documentation, or is there none? Research on company policy, procedure and the applicable laws will be needed in order to create an appropriate procedure document.
