This this can't happen to you? Think again

When you’re managing payroll, “I didn’t know” and “I didn’t mean to do it” are excuses that go about as far with the IRS as four flat tires will take you down the nearest interstate.

They will, however, take you as far as the nearest courtroom. And they may take you—or your boss—to jail.

Skeptical? Check out a sample issue of Payroll Legal Alert, and see how one business owner’s decision to avoid paying payroll taxes while continuing to pay salaries and other expenses landed him 30 months in prison.

The IRS filed 109 counts. The owner was convicted of 107 of them.

So … which pay-related mistakes are you making?

Government agencies are constantly updating and changing the way payroll is managed. And the last thing you want is the Department of Labor or the IRS to come calling. A Businessweek report says FLSA lawsuits have “exploded nationwide” and the DOL is beefing up enforcement.

Payroll Legal Alert—written especially for payroll managers at small and mid-sized companies—is the resource you need to help you avoid costly mistakes. Just a few minutes a month spent with Payroll Legal Alert will help you stay in compliance—and out of court.

PAYROLL PUMMELING #1:

AT&T is embroiled in a $1 billion lawsuit—and has already paid out more than $30 million in wage-and-hour claims.

The ire of your colleagues is bad enough if you make an error, but much worse are the penalties, fines, lawsuits (and, yes, jail time) that can arise from payroll mistakes.

Are your employees wrongly classified as exempt from overtime? Are you paying your hourly employees for travel time—or should you? Are you retaining payroll records as long as you need to? Are your wage-and-hour policies included in your employee handbook? There’s a lot to consider—and you have to be right about it all.

PAYROLL PUMMELING #2:

Big Lots successfully defended two major FLSA lawsuits recently—but at what cost to pay their high-powered attorneys?

Payroll Legal Alert helps you avoid potential penalties, fines and lawsuits by keeping you current on payroll legislation. We also track key issues such as in-plan Roth IRA rollovers, FLSA compliance trouble areas, FSA/HSA reimbursements and the Health Care Tax Credit. You will also find useful calendars and worksheets designed especially for payroll specialists.

Your Payroll Legal Alert will arrive 12 times per year, with 8 fact-packed pages in each issue, so you’ll always be current on critical payroll management issues. Every month, in addition to your mailed copy, you’ll receive your issue as a downloadable PDF delivered straight to your inbox.

And twice a year, for no additional charge, you’ll also receive the Payroll Legal Alert State-By-State Roundup, a summary of the most important payroll law and regulation updates in your state, surrounding states and across the country.

Plus, as an added benefit, you’ll be able to email Alice and our editorial staff about your most crucial, time-sensitive concerns. Whether your company is large or small, this kind of support can make a big difference in your ability to do your job correctly.

PAYROLL PUMMELING #3:

Walmart has seen juries award more than $650 million to disgruntled employees who claimed they had to work through breaks and when off the clock, with dozens more wage-and-hour lawsuits pending nationwide.

Big companies paying out billions of dollars for being out of compliance is scary. But the compliance blame game isn’t just for supersize corporations.

PAYROLL PUMMELING #4:

In U.S. v. Crabbe, the VP of a company that provided nursing services to healthcare facilities was convicted of 10 counts of failing to remit payroll taxes and 6 counts of filing false returns; he got 37 months in prison.

As of Dec. 13, 2010, employees with unresolved FMLA or FLSA complaints with the DOL are being told of another option: a toll-free phone number that can link them to an ABA-approved lawyer in their area who could handle their lawsuit. The Wall Street Journal says the partnership essentially “helps plaintiffs’ attorneys hunt for clients … let the suing commence.”

Do YOU want to be the person responsible for having your boss led away in handcuffs? Or being forced to pay a massive fine from his PERSONAL account? When all eyes are on you, turn your eyes to Payroll Legal Alert.
