Workshop Resources and Worksheets

Don't know how to do an employee pay audit? Never in your life had to do an exemption status audit? Well those are all necessary to make a strategic compliance plan for your small business. But, the worksheets and templates you get with your workshop registration will make it super easy. The worksheets include:

  • Exempt employee status audit worksheet: Are your exempt employees really exempt? We get to the bottom of that question with this worksheet. This audit is a critical part of your plan of action.

  • Exempt employee pay audit: We use this worksheet to find out how many of your exempt employees will be due a raise if you take no action. We will use the information collected in this audit to form to make a plan that prevents your payroll budget from exploding.

  • Exempt Employee Hours and Tasks Tracker: We need to know how many hours exempt employees are working and what they are working on. This worksheet gives you the information needed to make important staffing decisions.

Don't go it alone. You don't have to be confused or frustrated with complying with this new rule. Sign up for the workshop today and I will guide you through the process.
