If the payroll clerk is rendered unable to work for any length of time due to sickness or personal reasons, or is just taking a holiday, it will be possible to cope in his or her absence by planning ahead, since you know he or she will be back within a set time and will be able to deal with urgent matters yourself. However, if the payroll clerk leaves your company for whatever reason, you are faced with several options.
You could take on the responsibility of processing the payroll yourself. This would have the disadvantage of giving you extra work and distracting you from the day to day running of your business in other areas. A new payroll clerk could be employed. The time and cost in recruiting and training a suitable clerk to use your system would be expensive as you will again not be able to keep an eye on what else is happening. The third choice that might be worth considering is outsourcing to a payroll company.
