A Friendly Warning from the Grim Reaper

Evil HR Lady

No, payroll wasn't interested. I may have hinted a few times that I know a thing or two about layoffs. This would be true. In fact, if you see me coming, it's best to start packing up your things right now because it will save us all hassle later on. This, actually, is not true. Your manager would be terminating you, not me, so feel free to chat with me and share your Christmas candy.) So, here's the deal. You may get laid off.

Helpful Hints From Your Evil HR Lady

Evil HR Lady

And questions about tax withholdings--well, those should go to payroll. The IRS has their rules, payroll has theirs and the Evil HR Lady does not want to get in the middle. Fighting the IRS and payroll is well, a classic blunder. If you get paid twice a month (usually the 15th/30th of each month), you get 24 pay checks a year. If you get paid every other week (usually Fridays), you get 26 pay checks a year.

Leave Policy Missing In Action

Evil HR Lady

For example: Can this individual remain on the payroll collecting sick leave until the leave runs out? Under what circumstances can an employee with sick leave available but no intention of returning to work remain on the payroll? A long-time employee went out on sick leave a couple of months ago, and has recently expressed the intention of remaining on leave for the next six months.

Punitive Measures

Evil HR Lady

At the end of each day the policy is that all time sheets are to be handed in, so that at the end of the week I am not doing the data entry and payroll for 36 people. Man, I could get the payroll done in 20 minutes. It may be--I don't do payroll for your company. Payroll is truly what makes the world go round--and no one appreciates you like they should. I work for a company with technicians who travel to residence/business for installation or service.

Jobs Friday: The November BLS Jobs Report

Workology

Non-farm payroll increased by 271,000 in October and the unemployment rate is at a 7-year low of 5%.

Workology

From 2008 to 2010, the percentage of medium-sized companies (those with 500-4999 employees) that offered these benefits only grew by five points (From 32 percent to 37 percent). For employers, this also raises their payroll taxes. The Williams Institute and Center for American Progress report called “Unequal Taxes on Equal Benefits” states that employers collectively pay a total of $57 million per year in additional payroll taxes because they offer domestic partner benefits.

99 Problems: E-Verify Ain't One.

HR Capitalist

30 seconds later I read this in the same article: "Opponents worry that more full-timers will be registered as contract workers by companies seeking to avoid E-Verify, cutting payroll tax revenues. The more E-Verify laws we have in this country, the more payroll taxes we’re going to lose.” A 2008 Congressional Budget Office report estimates that requiring E-Verify nationally would cut federal tax revenue by more than $17 billion.".

Even for those of us who know we’re happier working independently, it’s alluring to contemplate rejoining the conventional workforce. But whenever I’m tempted to “get a job,” I’m reminded of what a former CEO once said to me about Hollywood: that it’s “full of highly-paid temps.”
