Description:

Who’s entitled to travel pay under the California Labor Code and accompanying Division of Labor Standards Enforcement (DLSE) regulations? And when? These seem like two straightforward questions, but the fact is these are two loaded questions that employers everywhere, and especially here in California, struggle with due to the complex nature of the applicable wage and hour rules.

If your organization operates in California and doesn’t strictly follow the state’s labor code regarding compensation for work-related travel, on-call time, or training, you’re at risk for costly lawsuits and government fines. And the rules can be tricky:

That’s because there are many “if this, then that” scenarios that come into play. For instance:

  • What if employees’ travel is between different job sites?
  • What if their flights get cancelled?
  • What if they tack on a vacation using PTO?
  • How should you handle pay for non-exempts who travel at night or over the weekend, when they’re technically off-duty?
  • When must training time be compensated?
  • How “on-call” does an employee really have to be for the time to be compensable in California? What should you do if the person is just hanging out at home with a cell phone at the ready?
  • When is travel between job sites compensable?
  • Under what circumstances would commuting to or from home be compensable?
The “what if’s” can be seemingly endless, but your “then that” response concerning the compensability of the travel time in question doesn’t have to be!

Join us for an in-depth webinar on how to apply California’s wage and hour requirements to travel, training, and on-call pay for overtime-eligible employees, so that you can stay in compliance and out of court.

You’ll learn:
  • The key factors that determine when travel time or on-call time can be considered compensable work time
  • How California laws differ from federal – and what you need to know to stay compliant
  • 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
  • How travel applies to employees who telecommute, either occasionally or full-time
  • What to consider when determining an employee’s overtime rate—such as longevity pay
  • Compensation for nonexempt employees who work beyond their regular shift (lunch, coming in early, etc.) and perform legitimate work activities
  • When you have to pay for on-call time—even if the employee isn’t working during that time—and when you don’t
  • How much compensation is required for a paid on-call employee
  • Best practices for drafting effective travel/overtime/on-call policies for your organization, so you’re in compliance with FLSA and
  • California regulations
  • And much more!

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.

The live 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.
