State Compliance Is Focus Of CCH
Employment, Compensation, Payroll Books

(RIVERWOODS, ILL., June 23, 2000) – What you do to comply with employment laws depends in part on where you are, because basic questions of workers rights, compensation and payroll administration vary greatly from state to state, according to CCH INCORPORATED (CCH), a leading supplier of human resources and payroll law and software. How much time off must employees be given to vote, how late a 16-year-old can work on a school night and whether a company is required to maintain an employee’s group health coverage during family leave are all questions whose answers depend on geography. To help answer them, CCH has published three books that ease the burden on those who must comply with varying state requirements: State Individual Employment Rights Laws, State Compensation Laws and the CCH State Payroll Law Handbook (fourth edition). (Each book, $125. To order, call 1-888-276-5422 or visit the new CCH online store at

Many Facets of Employment Rights

From the rights to organize and strike, to whistleblower protection and drug testing, State Individual Employment Rights Laws – Labor Relations, Employee Leave, Employee Rights and Protections contains the full text of state laws relating to important employee rights and protections. It collects and organizes the relevant laws from the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.

State Compensation Laws is a compilation of all the laws covering wages and hours in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands that will help companies avoid the time-consuming investigations, fines and hefty back-wages bills that can result from violations of state laws.

State Compensation Laws provides the full text of all state statutes dealing with wages and hours and includes coverage of state regulations, orders and rules where they are available.

  • Minimum wage
  • Equal pay

For Payroll Specialists

Designed especially for those with payroll responsibilities who need quick answers to state law questions, the fourth edition of the CCH State Payroll Law Handbook lays out the current payroll laws for all 50 states – plus Washington, D. C. and Puerto Rico – in an easy-to-find, easy-to-use format.

Arranged in chart form, the CCH State Payroll Law Handbook allows payroll administrators and managers, corporate comptrollers, accounting managers, bookkeepers, tax accountants and human resources professionals to tell at a glance what they need to do to comply with the payroll laws regarding wages and hours, wage deductions, benefits such as family and medical leave, direct deposit, jury duty and new hire reporting in any jurisdiction.

Anyone with payroll responsibilities can turn to the State Payroll Law Handbook for instant answers to the real-life questions they have to deal with every day, such as:

  • Child support enforcement
  • Deposits of withheld tax
  • Electronic funds transfer
  • Family leave
  • Garnishment
  • Income tax withholding
  • Magnetic media filing
  • Minimum wage and overtime pay
  • New hire reporting
  • Unemployment insurance

The clear, jargon-free language of the CCH State Payroll Law Handbook makes even the most complex topics easy to understand. In most instances, the source of the state law is cited, providing a starting point for more in-depth research.

Important addresses, such as those for each state’s child enforcement agency, are listed and payroll calenders for each state (as well as a federal calender) give due dates for paying over tax in every jurisdiction.
