Getting LOTS of really great feedback from the class today. Our course instructor Tina is great and has been keeping the team engaged throughout the day (which is especially hard on a Friday)!  I know that the course has been well received, because team managers have been coming to me and letting me know that their staff members are really excited about what they are learning; some are even speaking to me about having the course be repeated! Thanks for sending such a great instructor – payroll is hard to make ‘fun and sexy’ – but she’s making the day. –– Julie O., ADP

Test Your Level of Payroll Compliance Knowledge

You can also use our Payroll Knowledge Evaluator to do a preliminary test of the payroll compliance knowledge of your payroll staff. This self-service, 2-hour online test is designed to gauge an individual’s understanding of core payroll compliance. This tool can be used to benchmark the competencies of payroll staff, which can then guide managers in training and development planning.

There are three separate evaluators to better serve the needs of the payroll community:

  • Full Body of Knowledge – covers federal and all provincial/territorial legislation
  • Federal and non-Québec – covers federal and all provincial/territorial legislation, excluding Québec
  • Federal and Québec – covers federal and Québec legislation
