How To Comply with Travel Pay Requirements Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)

Today, one of the major concerns of your payroll department should be how to compensate employees for the hours they spend travelling on business. Noncompliance lawsuits are becoming increasingly commonplace as employers try to keep up pace with recent changes in federal and state wage and hour rules. Also, economic pressures on employers and employees create a situation where compliance may be disregarded leading to massive penalties and fines-especially if travel time results in overtime being owed to the employee.

It's not just the DOL that is interested in ensuring that you comply with Travel Pay regulations, the IRS also takes a great interest when employees are reimbursed for travel pay. It has strict regulations on when employees can be paid for travel expenses without it being considered wages.

This webinar by expert speaker Vicki M. Lambert, CPP will focus on Travel Pay requirements under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). It will act as a great resource of information and knowledge for your payroll as well as your HR department. You will learn when to pay employees for travelling and when not, as well as get answers to the following:

  • When an employee is called out on an 'emergency' is he entitled to Travel Pay for travelling a substantial distance?
