Florida PALM Payroll Management


What is Payroll Management? Payroll Management includes functions that support the management of payroll lifecycle activities.  This includes maintaining employee records, calculating and processing payroll, payroll deductions and remittances, tax reporting, and other related activities.

How will payroll be handled in Florida PALM? Florida PALM is an integrated system that is replacing FLAIR PYRL and Employees' Information Center (EIC).  The Florida PALM payroll module will interface with the Human Resource Information System (HRIS) (i.e., People First or Highline).

Check out this helpful video which provides an overview of the Payroll Management process.
