Payroll Processing in California Demystified!

It's true that California has a style of its own - this is especially true in the area of employment law. It can be a bit complex situation to stay in compliance with California requirements while processing payroll considering that it has arguably the largest amount of hour and wage laws compared to any state. An unaware and careless employer may fall on potential traps while handling issues such as travel time, donning and doffing, local minimum wage, mandatory sick leave, call-backs, split shifts, meals and meal periods, overtime, and numerous other pitfalls. Yes, and if you add the changes that have occurred for 2016, compliance can become a nightmare. The tiniest infraction can lead to serious penalties for the payroll department.

Though a sovereign state, even California can sometimes follow the federal rules when it comes to calculating overtime, and defining regular rate of pay, workweek and workday. However, the state has its own requirements for areas of wage and hour law that the federal does not address including paycheck stub requirements and posting regulations - also add the anti-theft wage law passed recently by the state.

Therefore, payroll professionals in California must be familiar with both the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and the California Labor law and know when which one takes priority. With all these different factors to contend with when processing payroll, one must be very diligent to avoid costly fines, penalties and litigation.

This session by expert speaker Vicki M. Lambert, CPP will give you the knowledge and skills in payroll preparation according to California and federal wage and hour laws. You will get a better understanding of proper overtime pay calculation; what is considered hours worked and how to handle such working hours reporting time pay; split shift pay; and meeting times in California. Questions such as when an employee must be given a break or lunch and when an employer may dock for meal periods, as well as when the state's penalties for failure to do so will be invoked, will be answered.

Additionally, you'll get knowledge of the requirements for paying employees, including pay frequencies permitted and methods allowed under state's laws as well as requirements when an employee terminates. Plus, get a basic understanding of what must be included on a paystub in California and knowledge of California's Mandatory Sick Leave law.
