GPMI, along with its partners have developed a COVID-19 resource page to assist global payroll professionals as we continue to navigate these uncharted waters. This one-stop-shop has compiled articles, webinars, resources, and tools to provide insight, guidance, and support as the globe responds to the pandemic differently. As such employment and payroll requirements have become center stage; as a payroll professional our subscribers need to know where to find country specific information that their employers need.
There is arguably no more crucial function within an organization than getting employees paid accurately and on time. As employers respond to the spread of the novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), payroll professionals must be prepared for questions from company executives, managers, and employees. The actions companies are taking in response to COVID-19, whether to reduce working hours, allow more employees to work from home (telecommuting), or shut down indefinitely, are raising difficult compliance questions for payroll. The content will be continuously updated to ensure subscribers have the most up-to-date information to perform their jobs at the highest level possible.
