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.
And California employers have even more to deal with, since the Labor Code in the Golden State is decidedly more pro-employee than federal wage and hour law.
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.
Participate in this interactive webinar, and you'll learn:
- Key issues you must be able to identify to tell if travel time is work time
- The basic rules of the travel pay compliance highway - so you don't get jammed in legal gridlock
- Best practices for ensuring you've got it right when determining whether commuting time or travel during regular work hours qualifies as paid work time
- Whether travel between job sites is compensable under California law
- How to tell when compensation may be owed for overnight travel or time spent at training programs, seminars, and conferences
- The special factors that could change your travel pay obligations, such as when employees drive their own vehicles or respond to work-related emergencies
- If and when telecommuters may be entitled to compensation for their travels
- Best practices for drafting an effective travel pay policy for your organization
- And more!
In just 90 minutes, you'll learn how to comply with the rules of the road for travel pay in California. Register now for this informative event for HR professionals in California.
