Payroll Practice and Management covers all critical areas of payroll administration and management.  You will start by learning the major components of the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938, as well as the Internal Revenue Code. Each of these will provide a foundation of knowledge regarding the classification of workers, the calculation and payment of overtime, minimum wage, child labor, and all other relevant wage and hour laws.  You will also cover the major components of the state labor code for your chosen state; we recommend choosing the state in which you intend on working, to best prepare you for your certification exam and career search.

The program will then discuss the relevant sections of the Internal Revenue Code and state code relating to the calculation, withholding and reporting of required taxes on wages. But, there is more to payroll than calculating gross wages and taxes.  You will then review the definitions, basic requirements, taxation and reporting of various types of fringe benefits and compensation that may be offered by an employer and handled by the payroll department. 

Finally, you will learn about the year-end forms that payroll is required to process, as well as how to handle garnishments and manage the department itself.  This program will teach you many facets of payroll administration and management, including using the Internet to obtain information from government agencies, garnishments and levies, year-end reporting forms and requirements, direct deposit, record retention, writing payroll procedures, and staff training.   

Upon registering, you're given an initial six (6) months to complete the program. Should you need more time, you may request a six (6) month extension at no additional charge.
