What you’ll learn:

Payroll professionals progressing through their career will experience different payroll and work environments. This can mean practitioners have gaps in their understanding and knowledge of payroll environments they have not worked in. This Level 7 Masterclass workshop is designed to give participants a wide coverage of payroll topics to build on their payroll understanding.

The Masterclass is an assessed course with an hour-long assessment activity on the second day. The workshop is also aligned to the NZPPA Certification framework (levels 2-6) and will prepare participants to undertake the online assessment requirement of certification.

Course Content:

The Payroll Masterclass workshop is based on the NZPPA Practice Guide, with 7 modules delivered over two-days.

  • Employment Law Part 1: Employment Terms
  • Employment Law Part 2: Holidays and Parental Leave
  • Other types of employee leave
  • Payroll records and privacy
  • Other laws related to Payroll
  • Calculating a final pay
  • Participants receive a copy of the current NZPPA Payroll Practice Guide as the course book (500+ page reference guide).

    After, you’ll be able to…

  • Describe a wide range of legislation and how it impacts on payroll.
  • Locate and use a wide range of references to access up-to-date references on legislative terms.
  • Explain how legislative terms are used in different payroll environments.
