Black Company recently hired you to prepare the monthly payroll along with other accounting tasks on October 1. You will find attached an excel spreadsheet and several pdf forms that will assist you in preparing their manual payroll entries. Personal data for the 4 employees (including yourself, the President, a Salesperson and the Manager) is provided on the Employee Earnings tab in the excel workbook. All employees are paid monthly with the Manager and President being paid a salary and the other two being paid an hourly rate. Both you and the Salesperson are not considered white-collar employees, so the company is responsible to pay you overtime for time worked beyond 40 hours per week.
