Live Webinar: Wednesday, July 25, 2018

1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Eastern / 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Pacific


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to avoid payroll administration mistakes stemming from pay cards, direct deposit, reimbursements, final paychecks, fringe benefits, and other potentially thorny issues.



Dealing with employee compensation doesn’t just stop when you arrive at a fair wage. There are pesky pitfalls attached to generating paychecks and many easily overlooked components that are required—deductions for taxes, W-4s, and more.

With the omnipresence of direct deposit—for most companies—payroll does not mean having to deal with hard copy checks anymore. However, your state may require that you provide pay stubs for your employees, even if they do get paid via direct deposit.

Even though pay cards are becoming more popular, you still need to keep track of withholdings and deductions, etc. In addition, your state’s law could differ from others in how to handle this payment format.

Finally, there are the issues of reimbursements, fringe benefits, and final paychecks. These three payroll administration areas can be particularly tricky to maneuver.

Don’t get stuck in the payroll administration mud! Join us on July 25 when Attorney Kate Bischoff, SHRM-SCP/SPHR and CPA Elizabeth Bystrom will explain how to avoid paycheck administration pitfalls and how to navigate through tricky paycheck administration-related issues—from final paychecks, reimbursements, fringe benefits, and more.

You’ll learn:

  • Missteps to avoid concerning direct deposit and pay cards that could lead to costly legal penalties
  • How to accurately account for the fair market value of non-cash compensation such as fringe benefits when employees receive payment in a form other than cash
  • How to manage reimbursements, including how to tell when reimbursements should be included or excluded from wages
  • How far your legal obligations extend concerning payment of final wages—and where to look to find applicable state laws that could affect your payroll administration compliance obligations
  • Payroll recordkeeping essentials—what to keep and for how long
  • And more!
