Securing Payroll Compliance while Compensating for Travel Expenses

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?

Join the live webinar event by expert speaker Vicki M. Lambert, CPP, who 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.
