How to Document Your Payroll Procedures

Duration: 75 Minutes
The Sarbanes Oxley Act requires that all areas of accounting within a company have well-documented policies and procedures. This includes payroll. While every payroll professional knows that all employees must be paid accurately, that contracts and wage and hour laws are adhered to, and that each paycheck is taxed properly, actually writing procedures to do so is an arduous task, especially considering the myriad rules and changes.
