Description and Learning Objectives - Participants completing this seminar should be able to:

  • Internal Controls:  This session will focus on payroll functions adhering to the three A’s of payroll: accountability, authorization, and approval principles.  Understanding how to execute and be responsible for these internal control principals will be the key takeaway from this session.     
  • FMLA & Voluntary Deductions:  This session is a two part session focusing on the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) from a payroll perspective and an overview of payroll voluntary deductions. 

Part I: FMLA
FMLA can be complex to administer and payroll staff is often given the responsibility of determining leave eligibility along with payment.  This session will review those FMLA “gray areas” where it is difficult to determine eligibility and payment of FLMA.  A scenario review will be provided as well. 

Part II: Payroll Voluntary Deductions
Voluntary deductions are those that you offer and your employees accept (such deductions may include but is not limited to health insurance, retirement plans, flex spending accounts, union dues, etc.)  Understanding of each voluntary deduction being pre-tax versus after-tax deduction will be a key takeaway from this session.  

  • IRS Forms 1094 & 1095: The Affordable Care Act (ACA) has resulted in a host of changes for the compliance reporting requirements of employers.  After filing new IRS Forms 1094 & 1095 for the first time in 2015, this session will help clarify common misunderstandings for the upcoming 2016 tax reporting year. 
  • Workers Compensation: When an employee is injured at work, Workers’ Compensation benefits are available to cover lost wages and medical cost related to the injury.  This session will focus on assisting payroll staff in determining how to make the right decisions in the claims handling process for payment.  A look at different claim situations will be reviewed.
