Back in 1999 with Y2K looming on the disaster horizon many payroll departments were coerced into creating elaborate and multileveled disaster plans that may have even included guarding offices in case of riots and having enough currency on hand to pay all employees in cash. But when Y2K turned out to be a dud, many of these disaster plans were shelved-perhaps a bit too quickly. Because after 15 years of experiencing power outages in the Northeast, severe ice storms in the Midwest, hurricanes Katrina and Sandy, wild fires in California and the horrible events of 9-11, it has become all too clear that disaster recovery plans must be a critical part of any payroll department’s long range planning.
Payroll professionals are all too aware that any business disruption-nature or manmade-can not only short circuit paychecks and third party transactions, but also expose the company to penalties and fines for noncompliance in paying employees or in reporting and remitting payroll reports and employment taxes.
In this conference, expert speaker Vicki M Lambert, CPP will embark on an in-depth discussion covering the key points that are required for the payroll department to continue operating properly during disaster situations. Here you will get guidelines for creating a disaster program, identify critical elements necessary for a successful program, and get sample charts explaining critical functions.
