This webinar will discuss the issues that arise when an overpayment has been made and address the requirements that must be followed to help the payroll department establish a clear policy on handling overpayments that keep it in compliance with federal and state laws and regulations.

Why Should You Attend:

Wage overpayments can be a source of significant cost in terms staff time spent in analysis and correction. Compliance issues and errors made during the correction process can add to the costs. In the case of overpayments, employers must abide by federal and state wage laws, and cannot simply deduct money from an employee's paycheck. In some cases, this could result in a violation of minimum wage or overtime rules or the requirement to pay full salary to exempt employees. In a number of states, employers may not recover wage overpayments through payroll deduction without the consent of the employee.

In this session expert speaker, Patrick Haggerty will discuss the issues that arise when an overpayment has been made. It will address the requirements that must be followed to help the payroll department establish a clear policy on handling overpayments that keep it in compliance with federal and state laws and regulations.

Understanding your compliance obligations and responsibilities to your employees is critical. Recovery of an overpayment may also create reporting and recordkeeping issues related to taxes and fringe benefits.
