School Employees & Overtime: The Latest Blog from Wage and Hour Insights

In addition to my own blog I like to make sure I follow other  well written and accurate blogs that discuss wage and hour law or other payroll related items.  The Wage & Hour Insights blog is one such blog.  I have shared several of them in the past months.  This time the blog addresses a unique situation but still one that is relevant to all payroll professionals.  Do school employees get overtime for occasional extra duty?  Why relevant to all payroll professionals?  Because though the law does give a limited exception to state and local government employers it does not to private sector employers.  So check out today’s blog from Bill Pokorny for government employees.  But also check out his previous blog on the subject for private sector employers.

Child Support Report is In–Payroll Doing a Great Job!

The Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) has submitted its Annual Report to Congress FY 2015.  The report outlines its accomplishments and provides a status for the program. This fiscal year marked the 40th anniversary of the Child Support Program, which was established in 1975.  In total, $32.4 billion  in child support was collected in FY 2015.  Of this $24.3 billion or 75% was collected through income withholding from the employee’s paycheck.  Well done payroll professionals!
