In payroll we calculate the gross wages of an employee by meticulously following strict regulations on what must be or must not be counted as hours worked and taxable income. We pay the employee their net paycheck only by the payment method that is permitted. But what about in between? When it comes to deducting from the employee’s gross wages to achieve the net income are you also adhering strictly to the rules?
Failure to follow the regulations pertaining to employee wage deductions can result in substantial penalties and interest. Attend this 90 minute presentation to gain knowledge to protect your company.

- Taxes—which are mandatory, which are a courtesy, and which ones the employee controls
