This course centers its discussion around the ever-present dilemma of payroll fraud. Some questions that will be addressed are how big the problem is, the demographics of the perpetrators, the types of companies who fall prey to payroll fraud and most importantly, how to reduce the risk of becoming a victim.


To be clear, this is not a discussion of how to do payroll so much as it is an informational course on how your practice fits in with the issue of payroll fraud and how to prevent it.
