Travel Pay Explained: How to Avoid Legal Jams on the Federal Wage and Hour Highway
|Date / Time:
Organizations are seeing the number of class-action lawsuits involving allegations of unpaid and off-the-clock work time on the rise. 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 and hour claims since travel is an integral part of most everyone's workday - yet it is often left at the bottom of HR managers' to-do lists. Whether it's a weeklong business trip out of state or a day trip to a training session, handling travel pay incorrectly could leave your organization open to costly legal action.
It is critical for you to know what type of travel is compensable - and from what point. Get up-to-date on the latest travel time rules and wage and hour regulations so you can stay in compliance and out of court

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!
