If you attend the webinar, you will leave with a better understanding of your current operations - where they are likely in compliance and where they may not be.
You will know what areas of your organization need to be reviewed, and how to evaluate the information obtained in that review. With that information, you will be able to change your payroll management systems in order to increase compliance, and minimize the chance of costly audits or lawsuits.
Further, you will be given resources that provide centralized information from all 50 states and the federal legislature, so you can easily adjust your systems as needed.

There are many compliance considerations when operating a multi-location enterprise. Employers are obligated to the laws where employees are working-not just the laws where the business is based. If you have telecommuters or mobile employees that travel interstate, things get even more complicated.
Federal law takes precedence where it has a higher standard. This includes the FLSA, Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), and the Affordable Care Act (ACA). If a state, county, or city regulates something not addressed in the FLSA, you are obligated to comply with it. When a jurisdiction has a higher standard than the Federal law, you must follow the higher standard along with all provisions of the Federal law.
Fortunately, payroll tax is one of the easier fields to determine what you do and don’t do. You will learn the specifics of what states to pay SUTA tax to. You will learn how to determine for what states you have withholding tax liability and have to pay SIT. You will learn the other types of withholdings and multi-state tax issues for each of our 50 states. We will discuss techniques for creating employee handbook for multiple states and other areas of payroll tax management that can and do differ by state.
