To improve internal controls over payroll processing Sonoma should review, revise, and follow procedures to ensure that their overtime documentation is completed properly; that timekeeping staff are aware of the overtime provisions of the various laws, regulations, and bargaining unit agreements; and that staff who work overtime are paid the correct amount.
Sonoma has developed an ongoing process to audit the compensation transactions in an effort to avoid payment errors in the future. In addition, it provided training to all its human resources transaction personnel and timekeepers of applicable laws, regulations, contracts, rules, and policies. It provided training in February 2010 to all its managers and supervisors responsible for approving employees time. (2011-406, p. 145)
