Payroll Law (Canada ) Seminar by CareerTrack Seminars

How well do you know Canadian Payroll Law?

Are you fully versed in the rules, record-keeping policies, withholding regulations, and labour standards that affect payroll processing? Are you up-to-date on the government's latest changes, amendments, and requirements? Even seasoned payroll pros may find themselves needing a refresher … and if you are just getting started in the field, navigating the finer points of payroll law can easily become an exercise in frustration.

Join us for one day of focused, powerful training, and you'll discover information, strategies, and techniques to help you master all the core concepts of Canadian Payroll Law. You'll discover critical areas where you may be lacking skills or information, and gain the knowledge needed to strengthen your weak points and bring new clarity to those "grey areas" so prevalent in payroll law. Record-keeping requirements, remittances, jurisdictional issues, proper filing procedures, taxable vs. nontaxable withholdings, and US laws that affect Canadian workers — we'll cover a wealth of need-to-know information in this energizing, intense day of learning.

What you learn in just one fast-paced day could save you thousands of dollars in fines and penalties, as well as minimize legal blunders that could land your organization in legal hot water. This seminar will provide the peace of mind that comes from knowing you are following legal mandates precisely, and the satisfaction that comes from performing your job with knowledge and confidence.
