Payroll and Employee News
Tips to conduct an effective Employee Performance Review
The Job Description is not only a compliance exercise, but should be a living, up to date, document. This document can make or break your defense if an employee grievance is filed, and can also be useful to keep performance goals on track.
If you prepare your own payroll, be sure you are using the latest state unemployment rates for your company, and the most recent federal withholding tables. It would also be a good idea to remind your employees that changes in withholding should be made early in the year by submitting a new W-4 form to your HR or personnel office.
Avoid the headaches-Seacoast Accountability payroll services start at $100 per month.
