Course Description

There are several laws that protect employee during the end of employment process. It is critical that payroll understand these laws and how to administer them. Sometimes these laws have to be considered at both the state and federal level. Taxation issues and/or reporting becomes a concern for terminated employees. Special payment processing can be overwhelming as well.

This online CPE course is designed for individuals who would like to obtain a basic understanding of the employee termination process. Whether voluntarily or involuntarily terminated employees have rights and employers have responsibilities.

What needs to be paid (Wages, bonuses, commissions), what notices need to be supplied, what can an employer collect back from an employee? These questions will be discussed along with the COBRA requirements and unemployment follow-up.  In this continuing education course, we will discuss best practices and necessary internal controls in the termination process.
