Whether you are a payroll clerk or you work in the accounting department and are responsible for paying employees each pay period, understanding the rules on payroll is an essential must.
Government agencies such as the Department of Labor and their Wage and Hour Division have set rules on payroll, and the Fair Labor Standards Act has specific policies including but not limited to overtime laws, child labor laws and paying salaried employees versus hourly workers.
