Multi-State Payroll Compliance


Employers that employ people in more than one State need to be fully aware of the payroll laws in each of these States. This is necessary to show compliance with the laws, failure at which can result in several penalties.

TrainHR, a leading provider of professional training for all the areas of human resources, will offer complete understanding of the very important learning related to multistate payroll compliance at a comprehensive, three-hour webinar it is organizing on June 19.

Dayna Reum, Payroll Tax Manager at PetSmart Inc., will be the expert at this session, which, over three hours, will give its participants complete knowledge of this topic. Please visit to register for this session. This webinar has been approved for 3 HR (General) recertification credit hours toward aPHR, PHR, PHRca, SPHR, GPHR, PHRi and SPHRi recertification through HR Certification Institute (HRCI).


The main learning the participants of this session will get is an understanding of how to process, tax and maintain employees in multiple states. The expert will dwell on the state wage and hour laws at length and show the participants how to apply them with the federal wage and hour laws.
