Each of these will provide a foundation of knowledge regarding the classification of workers, the calculation and payment of overtime, minimum wage, child labor, and all other relevant wage and hour laws. You will also cover the major components of the state labor code for your chosen state; we recommend choosing the state in which you intend on working, to best prepare you for your career search.

You will then review the definitions, basic requirements, taxation, and reporting of various types of fringe benefits and compensation that may be offered by an employer and handled by the payroll department. Finally, you will learn about the year-end forms that payroll is required to process, as well as how to handle garnishments and manage the department itself.
