Employee Travel Pay Explained: HR's Wage & Hour Road Rules
|Date / Time:
Wage and hour litigation and Department of Labor enforcement remain two of HR's biggest challenges. Last year alone, the DOL's Wage and Hour Division received 40,000 complaints, a 15-percent increase from the previous year. Case in point: The WHD ordered Arizona Pipeline Co. to pay $750,000 to workers in California, Nevada, and Arizona for unpaid overtime and unpaid travel time.
Travel-related issues in particular pose a significant risk for wage &hour claims since travel is an integral part of most everyone's workday. Unless your workforce is home-based, your employees are commuting to and from the workplace, to and from job sites, and to and from hotels, airports, and conferences when they're on business trips. Even telecommuters may be entitled to pay for travel time in certain instances.
The trick is to know what type of travel is compensable - and from what point. Get up-to-date on the latest travel time rules and wage &hour regulations so you can stay in compliance and out of court.
Participate in this interactive webinar, and you'll learn:
- Federal travel pay requirements, including what you must pay for and why
- Tips for ensuring that travel pay is being correctly administered
- Which employees are entitled to travel pay and when, including best practices for differentiating between commuting time and travel time
- Whether travel between job sites is compensable under state and federal law
- Wage &hour obligations concerning overnight travel and time spent at training programs, seminars, and conferences
- How travel pay may affect overtime calculations for non-exempt employees
- Special factors that could change your travel pay obligations, such as employees driving their own vehicles or responding to work-related emergencies
- How laptops and smart phones affect payment for travel
- If and when telecommuters may be entitled to compensation for their travel
- Best practices for drafting an effective travel pay policy for your organization
In just 90 minutes, you'll learn everything you need to know to stay in compliance with the latest wage &hour laws affecting employee travel time compensation. Register now for this event risk-free.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
