Compensation and benefits are seen as important considerations for recruitment and retention and for many local government personnel costs can exceed seventy to eight percent of the operating budget. This session will explore both current trends in public sector compensation and current challenges in administering payroll. Specifically, speakers will highlight how the COVID-19 pandemic has changed payroll administration and how to deal with remote employees, taxable benefits, grant reporting, and out-of-state employees.
