Protect Yourself, Protect Your Business

Payroll is one of your company’s most critical areas to manage – and probably one of the most scrutinized. Employees expect to receive their paychecks on a certain day and time, and they expect their checks to reflect the time they put into their job. The IRS, the Bureau of Workers Compensation and state and local tax authorities expect the appropriate taxes to be withheld. Plus, the Department of Labor expects your employees to be legally eligible to work in the United States. And if that wasn’t enough, there are a range of changes and proposed changes to worry about.

Dee Gray, a certified payroll professional at Rea, continues to be on the lookout for news regarding the new W4, the potential increase in minimum salary for exempt employees, and possible changes to the overtime rules. On this episode of unsuitable, Dee will walk us through what she’s seeing in the payroll space, while providing you with tips to help prepare for whatever changes may come your way.
