A payroll clerk is responsible for ensuring that employees of the organization are paid accurately and on time. Other duties include managing backend data relating to the hours worked by an employee matched with their pay periods and hourly wages, salaries, overtime, sick days and vacation days. A payroll clerk can advance their career by becoming a certified payroll clerk attained by the American Payroll Association (APA). Other certifications offered by the APA include Certified Payroll Professional (CPP) or a Fundamental Payroll Certification (FPC).
A payroll clerk is not subject to any formal education requirements beyond a high school diploma or a general education diploma although holding an associate's degree and additional certifications issued by the APA are desirable. Computer technology and software skills are required as part of the job requirements together with strong calculation and organizational skills. Due to the nature of the job, candidates must be physically able to sit in front of a computer for long hours at a time.
