Dealing With the IRS and SSA
Webinar 1: August 1 (CT, PT) or August 2 (ET, MT)
The IRS and SSA can require more information than that found directly on tax returns, especially when information on one return does not reconcile with another return or when additional information is needed to explain a transaction. This session covers the requests for information from IRS CP (Computer-generated Paragraph) notices, audits, and SSA letters.
Avoiding the Payroll "Gotchas"
Webinar 2: August 8 (CT, PT) or August 9 (ET, MT)
Have you ever had something happen and think to yourself, "Am I the only one this happens to?" Most likely the answer is, "No, you are not alone." We will explore a few not so common payroll mistakes I have made, or should I say "payroll learning opportunities," so you can implement policies or practices to avoid them. In my 30+ years of payroll managerial experience, I think I've seen most everything that can or does happen in payroll.
• When implementing a new system, or working with a new vendor, have you read, cover to cover, the contract or agreement?
• When dealing with stock options or loans, are you abreast of all the details of the terms?
• When dealing with deductions or benefits, do you take someone's word for the details or do you research them yourself?
• We will discuss these topics and maybe several more mistakes I've made, along with ways you can avoid making them.
How to Handle Change and Upheaval
Webinar 3: August 15 (CT, PT) or August 16 (ET, MT)
Do you continually feel stressed by the changes going on around you? At work or at home, in today's world, things just never seem to stay the same from day-to-day.

• Evaluate typical attitudes toward change
• Recognize the signals of change-related stress
• Understand the four parts of the change cycle
• Effectively and happily handle resistance to change
Avoid Potential Penalties by Utilizing SSNVS and E-Verify
Webinar 4: August 22 (CT, PT) or August 23 (ET, MT)
Employers must determine whether each employee is authorized to work in the U.S. There are two free tools that are helpful in making that determination: the Social Security Numeration Verification Service (SSNVS) and the E-Verify system. Some employers in certain states must use E-Verify, but otherwise both of these tools are voluntary for any employer to use. How do you register? What are the benefits? Join us to learn more.
Compensable Time Issues
Webinar 5: August 29 (CT, PT) or August 30 (ET, MT)
Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), nonexempt employees are to be paid for all hours worked. The determination of what are hours worked is complicated. When must we pay nonexempt employees for travel time, on-call time, meal periods, and volunteer work? We'll take an in-depth look at these topics and more.
