Payroll Services

Employers Council is available to help you with all your Payroll Administration and Consulting needs.

Payroll setup and maintenance can be a daunting task, with both employee and organizational implications to consider – in addition to a host of federal, state, and local laws. It’s important to have clear policies in place so that you’re compliant with taxing authorities, and so that you can quickly resolve any issues around payment that arise. Our team has access to HR, finance, and legal resources to make sure your payroll is correct.

Employers Council can help you set up and maintain payroll, regardless of the back-end system you are using, guiding you through questions around overtime pay, garnishments, payroll deductions, tax reporting and withholding, how to resolve overpayments, and much more. Our experienced payroll professionals are available to offload some or all of your payroll function, allowing you more time to focus on the strategic goals of your organization. Whether you are looking for payroll processing, payroll platform administration, or even garnishment processing — our well-vetted HR and payroll professional consultants can provide interim or ongoing support, either on-site or remotely.

Our Members Include

I attended the harassment prevention workshop put on by Employers Council, and I wanted to share my praise for the presenter. I was skeptical about whether I would learn anything I didn't already know, but she presented the information in thought-provoking and nuanced ways. She answered questions well and had us do an activity that enlivened the presentation. As an academic, I particularly appreciated the way that she was able to address the issues intellectually and not simply give us an "information dump." Anyway, I was impressed with what I expected to be a boring presentation. - Professor, Regis University

Our handbook needed to be updated. We had done minor revisions over the years, but more policies than we needed crept into the handbook over time. I wanted to keep what was important and get rid of the rest. I sent my handbook to Employers Council and staff went through all of the policies to first let me know what could be eliminated, and what needed to change in order to bring it up to date. The best thing was that this is part of my full membership dues, so there was no charge for this. I send in my handbook every one or two years for a tune up, so it reflects current laws and stays streamlined.

Lynnette Siedschlaw, HR Director - Moffat County

As I faced some difficult employee problems over the years, I knew that I could reach out to Employers Council and get some good solid advice in how to handle a situation. In the 20 years if have been working in HR I don’t believe I was ever given bad advice. I may not have always agreed with what the counsel was, but I never put myself or the company in a compromising position by following your advice and recommendations.

Joe Maylin, Human Resources Manager - Utility Trailer Manufacturing Co.

Being able to reach out to someone on the Member Experience Team when something comes up and we're just not sure how to handle it is amazing. We have help just a phone call or an email away, and everyone that we have worked with has been so responsive, understanding, and helpful.
