Who We Work With


“Our Cooperative has been working with California Payroll since 2009. In that time we have decreased the number of labor hours needed to process payroll by switching from manual to online timekeeping. California Payroll has also helped us establish special reporting within our payroll system that fits the needs of our unique business.”
