How to compensate employees for the hours spent traveling on business is becoming one of the major concerns of the payroll department today. Many recent changes in federal and state wage and hour rules as well as economic pressures on employers and employees alike can create a situation that can practically invite noncompliance lawsuits—especially if the travel time results in overtime being owed to the employee. 

It isn’t just the DOL that is interested in travel pay. The IRS also has strict regulations on when employees can be paid for travel expenses without it being considered wages. Does the company use the per diem method to reimburse employees or the accountable plan method? Or do you even need to have a method when it comes to reimbursing employees for travel expenses?

In this session with expert Vicki Lambert, we will discuss the rules and regulations that must be followed while paying an employee for travel pay. This will include the purpose of travel pay, best practices for handling the payments, how it affects overtime calculations and what is required on the state level. She will also discuss the requirements for taxing travel expenses under the IRS rules.

Session Highlights:

  • Travel pay requirements—What you must pay for and why

  • Best practices for paying travel pay correctly

  • Which employees have to be paid…and when

  • Payroll Compliance and travel pay issues—keeping wage and hour claims at bay

  • What to do when federal and state laws conflict and handling multiple state conflict issues 

  • How travel pay affects overtime calculations—travel pay differences for exempt and non-exempt employees

  • Special circumstances that may require travel payment

  • What are per diems

Vicki has a great speaking voice, so I was relieved that I heard that first. A hour and a half is a long time to listen to someone who doesn't have a very good speaking voice. I was excited for this webinar as it exactly cover what I was looking for in terms of Travel Pay guidelines. I did receive some good references so that I can continue to seek out what it was that I was looking for. Overall, I'm glad I attended,
