Congress to Address Several Payroll-Related Bills

The Business Activity Tax Simplification Act and The Mobile Workforce State Income Tax Specification Act of 2011 would mainly revise how employers deal with employees who work in more than one state.

Wage and hour legislation is pending to increase minimum cash wage for tipped workers, penalize employers for misclassifying workers, and extend FSLA protections to home care workers.

Other payroll-related legislation includes interest owed on federal funds borrowed by states to meet unemployment insurance demands.
