Understand the impact of the latest case law on payroll

National Minimum Wage and Employment Status are the biggest legislation issues employers must consider when employing staff and running payroll.

Recent case law is driving changes to employment status and organisations must now carefully consider the correct status of their staff to ensure they stay legally compliant, these issues have a significant impact on costs, conditions and employee protection. The ever-changing IR35 landscape provides payroll and HR with further challenges, and this will also be covered on the course.

The treatment of National Minimum Wage has also been under the microscope as HMRC increases its review of organisations and what employers consider time worked, employee deduction and correct levels of pay for work.

With over 400 companies being named and shamed for inconsistency or failure to pay the correct income, employers need to ensure that their payroll correctly reflects the latest regulations and case law.

"I have always found the Learn Centre to be helpful and supportive of not only mine but the team's payroll training needs. The blended learning approach works well for me and I would not hesitate to recommend them as a Payroll training specialist provider not only for online delivery (e-learning) but also face 2 face and in-house. The Payroll Professionals Conference is also a great networking opportunity."
