In a nutshell, we will discuss what you as an employer can and cannot be deduct from an employee’s paycheck – both the regular and final one. We will include a brief overview of child support and its limits, federal and state tax levies, which credit garnishments you can and must honor, voluntary wage assignments for payday loans, fringe benefits and several other related topics.

What must an employer deduct from an employee’s wages? What can be deducted legally? What can never be deducted? These questions and more must be answered correctly before processing that paycheck. If you don’t deduct the proper income taxes, the IRS (and corresponding State Taxation Dept) might assess penalties. If you make other illegal deductions from an employee’s pay, the US and/or State Dept’s of Labor may come knocking on your door. Does your employee have any say over any of those deductions? In this webinar, we’ll explore the answers to these and many other questions.

Why Should You Attend:

Strict regulations apply to calculating an employee’s gross wages, particularly regarding what is counted as “hours worked” and “taxable income”. When deducting from an employee’s gross wages to determine net income, an employer must adhere to the regulations or risk being subject to penalties and interest, which can add up to significant amounts. In this webinar, you will learn how to protect your company while complying with wage deduction laws. We will focus primarily on federal laws and general legal principles that apply to all (or most) states and may use some specific state examples as well.
