Reporting to the Payroll Manager, you will join a team that also includes a Payroll Analyst. We're looking for a professional who is highly motivated to ensure timely and accurate payroll processing, garnishment compliance and payroll tax filing. This will include identifying, analyzing and resolving process and system-related problems, developing root cause analysis and implementing corrective actions. We provide reports to several different business units, so you'll need to create different configurations.

More specifically, you will:
  • Research ongoing public works projects and payment requirements for prevailing wage work, including completion and filing of weekly certified payroll reports to outside entities. Quick question for you - click here
  • Configure all core data elements comprising the current timekeeping system, including downloading data at the end of each pay period to perform payroll processing.
  • Research reporting requirements for the Finance department and generate and analyze biweekly, monthly, quarterly and annual payroll reports utilizing the current payroll system.
  • Compile complex ad hoc reports for the executive team, managers and other requesting departments as needed.
  • Assume responsibility for quarterly tax filings and year-end W-2s from current payroll system, including making adjustments to earnings and taxes as necessary.
  • Analyze and prepare monthly and annual reports of company-paid fuel usage for W-2 reporting, including communications to employees.
  • Perform research on payroll related issues, including, but not limited to, tax withholding, overtime, 401(k) deferrals, loans, LOAs, garnishments and workers compensation for various states.
  • Keep abreast of current SOX controls and compile audit data for auditors. Assist with audits, month-end closing and special projects as assigned.
  • Preform some data input of payroll-related items into current payroll and timekeeping systems.
  • Perform routine training of other payroll team members and company employees for payroll-related items during onboarding.
  • Handle other duties as assigned.
