Students attending Lunch & Learn at Laurens Middle School discovered a great deal about the responsibilities of making sure that employees get paid correctly and in a timely manner.
Deborah Malone and Cathy Wimpey from the payroll department of Laurens County School District 55 were guest speakers. They shared with students about the work they do in processing pay for the district's many employees and further explained many of the required deductions and withholdings.
Students were given time to ask both Malone and Wimpey a variety of questions about the work they do and the skills needed for a career in the payroll department of a large organization or business.
