Third-Party Sick Pay

About This Course:
We will examine third-party sick pay. Most employers provide some degree of wage protection for employees who miss work as a result of personal illness or injury.

Sick pay paid directly by an employer generally is treated as ordinary wages, subject to withholding for federal employment taxes. FICA taxes, however, apply to such payments only for the first six months.

This webinar will discuss the details of providing sick pay through a third party, such as an insurance company, and its tax withholding ramifications.

We will examine which portions of the sick pay are subject to tax withholding and which are not. Also, we will look at which forms to complete when reporting this to the federal government.
