National Payroll Week

Have you ever looked at your paycheck and wondered what everything means? That’s one reason the American Payroll Association celebrates National Payroll Week each year during the week of Labor Day. It recognizes the hard work of America’s nearly 150 million wage earners and the payroll professionals who prepare their paychecks accurately and on-time, every time. More important, the goal is to encourage everyone who works to do a “paycheck checkup” to look for some simple things you might do to save some money, maybe even give you an instant raise. William Dunn, CPP of the American Payroll Association, explains why it’s important for every person to understand their paycheck!
