Created by the CPA, the authoritative source of Canadian payroll knowledge, and privacy experts Murray Long and John Wunderlich, Your Payroll Privacy Questions Answered, third edition, is a must-have resource for those individuals who are responsible for payroll and related functions in their organizations.

Payroll, by its very nature, has always operated with the realities of confidentiality and privacy protection. This updated edition of Your Payroll Privacy Questions Answered looks at how the federal and provincial privacy laws apply to payroll management and what precedents have been set thus far. It discusses what must be done, what should be done and what would be beneficial to do, as it relates to privacy. The book is based on the CPA's payroll and privacy web seminars and contains over 140 pages of answers based on real questions submitted by our members.
