Supplemental pay includes compensation such as overtime premiums, bonuses, severance pay and fringe benefits. It is an important component of employee compensation but has its own set of withholding rules. This training program will help attendees distinguish between supplemental wage payments and regular wage payments and help them identify wage payments that are neither supplemental nor regular. It will detail methods used to compute withholding on supplemental pay and discuss the application of the rules and methods to specific payments and situations.
