About the Class

Human Resources and Payroll often work hand in hand to make sure employees are compensated according to various labor laws within the state while enforcing company policies and procedures. Whether it’s the hiring process and completing a W-4 or direct deposit paperwork to terminating an employee and processing a final paycheck or severance payments, Human Resources and Payroll work closely together. It’s important to understand the role each of these divisions plays within an organization and how each impact one another.
