What, in practice does it mean between hourly and salary?
To me, salary has always meant that one is paid 37.5 (or whatever) hours
per week, regardless of how many hours you actually did. (that stuff is
not of concern to accounting).

So, really the difference is some organizations want to track unpaid
time off and paid time off in the accounting system.  
Some "salaried" employees get overtime too!

IV. year end summaries.  

I suggest that each withholding requires a liability account.
Provide a form that is basically balance sheet, but only shows accounts
which have been marked as being withholding.  Then, for each account,
sum it per employee (for the period involved).
