Termination Payouts: Everything You Need to Know to Stay Compliant
Since the country’s outbreak of COVID-19, businesses have had to take extreme measures to keep their company afloat during the pandemic - hour rollbacks, furloughs, compensation cuts, and layoffs.
When it comes to issuing final paychecks, you only have so much time to get it to employees while navigating the complex federal and state termination regulations.
And missing deadlines is the last thing you want, as you could be coughing up more cash for state late fees.
In this 60-minute workshop, you’ll navigate a bulletproof process to issue final paychecks, remain compliant, and meet your federal and state deadlines.
Learn actionable answers to your most pressing questions about issuing a final paycheck, including:
- How do final paycheck laws and processes differ depending on type of termination?

When you leave this workshop, you’ll be equipped with:
- A checklist to ensure compliance with federal and state regulations affecting termination payments

- How to handle, record, and report severance packages
