Don't Sign that Payroll Contract!
Contracts are a necessary part of life, but if you’ve ever read the fine print, you know that a contract is there to protect the company requesting it, not the customer signing it. Contracts are designed to mitigate risk for a company providing goods or services, and are often difficult to break.
Payroll contracts can often be complex, with clauses and termination policies that benefit the payroll company and not the customer using the payroll services. If your payroll company was any good at managing payroll, why would they need a complicated contract? Knowing what you’re getting into before you sign a payroll services contract can help you later down the line when something goes wrong.
If you are using a company to manage payroll for your organisation, there are many levels of service you should come to expect. Is the service team certified by the International Association of Privacy Professionals (CIPP)? Does your payroll company use secure, web-based technology to manage your data? Do you have access to accurate, real-time reporting? If the answer to any of these questions was No, you should re-evaluate your payroll processes and service provider before you’re locked in for another year.
