National Payroll Week Paycheck Check-Up

National Payroll Week is an annual celebration during the week of Labor Day that recognizes the hard work of America’s 150 million wage earners and the payroll professionals who prepare their paychecks accurately, on time, every time. Founded by the American Payroll Association, National Payroll Week encourages everyone who works to do a “paycheck checkup.” The goal is to look for simple ways to maximize earnings and boost savings.

The American Payroll Association’s William Dunn, CPP, explains why it’s important for every person to understand their paycheck.
