How to Handle Travel Pay Legally

Do you know when to compensate employees for travel time? Make sure you're compensating correctly and staying in compliance with federal laws.

Many companies do not understand how to compensate an employee properly for time spent traveling to destinations other than a regular work site. Many companies send employees to conferences and other work sites using commercial travel and personal vehicles. This timely topic will enable you to understand how and when to compensate an employee for travel time away from a work site. You will find out how to determine which employees are entitled to travel time pay and at what rate. With air travel being as busy as it is today, it is very important that you understand how to compensate employees when they are delayed as a result of flight cancellations. This important topic will show how critical it is to communicate the rate of pay, the requirements of travel and the travel tracking necessary to compensate the employee properly. Also learn about typical problems that arise with travel and other FLSA issues, such as meals during travel. The focus of this topic is on federal law rather than individual state law.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to differentiate between the factors that affect travel pay for nonexempt employees.
  • You will be able to identify the best practices to include in a Travel Policy.
  • You will be able to recognize factors that impact the calculation of time worked for an exempt employee.
