The Best Payroll-Compliant Practices for Remote and Hybrid Employees

Remote Employee Payroll

Worried about withholding for remote and hybrid employees? Learn how to comply with tax laws now to avoid fines later.

Do you have employees working from different states? You can easily overwithhold or underwithhold–and that’s just the beginning of your headaches.

Remote and hybrid work are here to stay. But for payroll professionals, the reality of remote and hybrid work has created a host of unintended tax and labor liabilities, evolving complexities and compliance risks.

Example: On April 23, 2024, the Department of Labor released final regulations raising the salary employees must earn to maintain their exemption from overtime. Five states set higher levels. How do you handle a hybrid, exempt employee?

It doesn’t matter if employees work across the country or only one or two days a week from home in different states. The odds are you’ll be liable to withhold and pay taxes in all of these states. One tax liability often leads to a host of others. Depending on state rules, you could also be on the hook for corporate, excise, and unemployment taxes. State minimum wage and wage payment laws present another surprise liability.

Are you prepared? Don’t get caught out of compliance. States, like the IRS, are unforgiving. And there’s no downside to states going after far-away employers.

In this webinar on Wednesday, June 12, learn the ins and outs of labor and tax laws when dealing with remote and hybrid workers. Discover how to track remote employees' time, comply with new and existing payroll laws, and avoid penalties for failing to pay employees properly. Learn what you need to know to avoid surprises and fines later.

Webinar Agenda

  • Pinpoint the 10 factors that determine if you owe taxes for remote workers in their home states.
  • Understand the Department of Labor’s most recent guidance on break times for remote workers.
  • Use nexus, domicile, and residency to your company's advantage. Those key concepts could get your organization off the hook for personal and corporate income taxes in some states.
  • Develop winning strategies for tracking remote employees’ work time. If remote employees are nonexempt, you need a sure-fire way to track their time.
  • Discover the best way to pay. While electronic pay options (like direct deposit) are optimal for employees who aren’t in the office, state laws can throw up a huge hurdle.
  • Find out where you are liable for unemployment coverage. State unemployment taxes can be tricky. Learn the four tests to see if you must pay up.
  • Learn the advantages and pitfalls of reciprocity and "courtesy withholding.” In some states you can withhold income taxes for employees' states of residence. But it could also open your company to an array of state taxes.
  • Avoid the complications with hybrid arrangements. Which states’ laws apply when? Employees who work under hybrid arrangements present twice the compliance headaches.

In this 75-minute online training, you'll learn how to:

  • Comply with state withholding and income tax rules. States’ relaxed withholding rules have long ended. Learn what you must do now to keep out of withholding and income tax trouble.
  • Smooth out the payday experience. Discover the most efficient and legal way to handle remote pay.
