What is the Pay Academy, you ask?

We’re dedicating the payroll section of our blog to compile payroll related articles into a knowledge hub for our readers.

If you are a small business owner or payroll professional and want to learn more about topics like vacation pay, worker’s compensation, payroll deductions, etc, this is the spot for you. We’re launching our academy through a syndication deal with payroll expert, Alan McEwen and you can check out the line up of articles in our schedule.

In the future, we hope to have other payroll professionals also contribute so that we can create a more robust repository of payroll information – picture Carnival of HR but with payroll articles :)

What do you need to do to reserve a spot?

No, no, please hold on to your first borns! All you need to do is subscribe to our blog and you can get these informative tid-bits of payroll awesomeness delivered right to your inbox.

What’s that? You don’t feel like signing up for anything? Well, that’s fine too! Just check back when you can and use the tag “pay academy” to find all the latest posts. Easy, peasy!

Our schedule

While we will certainly do our best to get these posts out to you every 2 weeks, we know that things rarely go as planned. But nonetheless, my uber-organized alter ego dictates that I try and give you some kind of schedule :)
