Learning Payroll II

Learning Payroll II expands on the concepts from Learning Payroll I by exploring more complex processes and government requirements. This interactive, exercise-based seminar covers the fundamentals of irregular payments, government remittance and reporting, along with basic termination information and how to complete the ROE.

This full-day seminar provides opportunities to ask questions, network with other professionals, and learn from best practice examples. Valuable take home materials include exercises and Learning Payroll II learning materials.

  • New staff with no or limited exposure to payroll and junior payroll staff
  • Practitioners returning to the payroll field
  • Other professionals who have functional responsibility for payroll (bookkeepers, accountants, and HR professionals)

Although Learning Payroll I is not a prerequisite, it is strongly recommended.
