In this course we discuss the payroll laws as to the timing of payment of wages to employees and how often those payments must be made. We start with a brief overview on pay frequency. From there we discuss timing requirements for payment of wages to employees based on state law.

We also cover termination pay to employees and how to pay final wages to deceased employees. Next we discuss the methods by which employers can pay their employees, including the details/information that must be included on pay statements provided to employees.  We conclude with how unclaimed wages are handled by employers. 

This course will serve as a review for payroll and Human Resources (HR) professionals who need to sharpen their fundamental understanding of payment of employees’ wages and how they could potentially impact the organization and the overall employee experience.

This was a good class. Not great and not awesome. If everyone got 4 or 5 stars it would mean nothing. I liked the content, good pace and a lot of detail. It is a topic that has a lot to discuss and Ms. Brickous did a good job. I recommend the course.
