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. But 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 webinar expert speaker Dayna Reum will concentrate on the requirements under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) of when to pay employees for traveling. She will cover if traveling outside of the employee’s normal work hours constitutes hours worked or not. What if the employee travels overnight or all in a day’s work—which one must be paid for and why? And she will discuss the various state requirements when they differ from the federal.
