CCH Announces 1999 U.S. Master™ Payroll Guide

(RIVERWOODS, ILL., April 15, 1999) – The 1999 U.S. Master Payroll Guide from CCH INCORPORATED, a leading provider of human resources law, is a new resource designed to make life simpler for anyone with bottom-line payroll responsibilities.

The Guide answers the most commonly asked payroll questions quickly and clearly, with explanations written by the editorial staff that daily monitors, reports and analyzes developments in the law for the authoritative CCH Payroll Management Guide.

"Mistakes in payroll, such as misclassifying employees or failing to withhold proper amounts, can lead to costly and embarrassing penalties, even when a company outsources its payroll processing," said Jeff Kessler, product manager, CCH Health and Human Resources group. "While a company may outsource the payroll function, it can’t outsource its legal liabilities."

Easy To Use With Comprehensive Coverage

The CCH 1999 U.S. Master Payroll Guide is full of checklists, charts, examples and highlighted "payroll pointers" and "cautions" that lead users to the right answers quickly and easily. All of the basic payroll decisions and requirements are discussed in the Guide, including:

  • Processing new employees, including employee versus independent contractor, common law, statutory and safe-harbor rules, new hire reporting, nonresident or resident alien and employment verification (I-9);
  • FLSA employee classifications;
  • FLSA minimum wage and overtime rules;
  • Recordkeeping and enforcement;
  • Payment of wages, including state requirements for payroll frequency, termination payments, pay period-to-payday intervals;
  • Tax treatments of fringe benefits, deferred compensation and retirement benefits, health benefits and other specific payments;
  • FICA, FUTA taxation;
  • State unemployment insurance;
  • Garnishments and other deductions;
  • Tax deposits and returns;
