Course Description

There are many compliance considerations when operating a multi-location enterprise. Employers are obligated to the laws where employees are working—not just the laws where the business is based. If you have telecommuters or mobile employees that travel interstate, things get even more complicated.

Federal law takes precedence where it has a higher standard. This includes the FLSA, Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), and the Affordable Care Act (ACA). If a state, county, or city regulates something not addressed in the FLSA, you are obligated to comply with it. When a jurisdiction has a higher standard than the Federal law, you must follow the higher standard along with all provisions of the Federal law.

Fortunately, payroll tax is one of the easier fields to determine what you do and don’t do. You will learn the specifics of what states to pay SUTA tax to. You will learn how to determine what states you have to withhold and pay SIT to. You will learn the other types of withholdings and taxes for each of our 50 states. We will discuss other areas of payroll tax management that can and do differ by state.

  • How to determine state withholding liability
