I have a payroll service provider that helps me with many different aspects of the cannabis dispensary industry.
My payroll service provider calculates all of the wages and takes care of paying all of my employees.
They also offer free tax withholding and wage garnishment for our employees. They help us with tax filing service and report all of the wages directly to the irs. The payroll company also provides us with end of the year tax preparation. We have a software program that keeps track of each one of the employees’ hours. When an employee uses their badge to log into the system, the time is automatically kept in the software system. When the employee logs out with the same number, the employee’s hours are calculated for the day and automatically entered into the system for the end of the week payroll. Employees get paid every week on friday. The payroll service calculates hours from Sunday until Sunday and then the employees get paid on friday. We do not withhold a week of wages. One of my dispensary employees was very upset last week because her check was not correct. She was supposed to have 70 hours worth of time, but she was only paid for 7 hours worth of time. We immediately contacted the payroll software company so they could figure out what happened. They were happy to look into things immediately and gave me the option to issue a check to the employee on the same day. I agreed and had the paycheck overnighted so the employee was not inconvenienced too much.
