Employee Travel Pay In California: The Latest Wage & Hour Road Rules For HR

About This Course:
Employees on the go, they are essential to your business. But they lead to so many complicated wage/hour questions, especially in California:
  • Can you pay a different rate for travel time?
  • If you pay a different rate for travel time and the employee works overtime, do you pay the rate of pay in force that triggered the overtime (plus overtime premium)?
  • If your driver takes home the company car, at what point do you stop paying him?
  • How do you compensate for non-work hours spent in transit? And what happens (on an airplane, say), if work is being performed during that time?
  • Is travel to or from an employee’s home ever considered compensable?
As more and more employees hit the road on a regular basis—whether it’s a weeklong out-of-state business trip or merely a 6-hour training session in the next town over, your risk of incurring travel-related wage/hour claims dramatically increases. And the penalties are steep, even if your intentions are good.

Don’t get caught unprepared. Join us when skilled California-based employment attorney, Marc Jacuzzi of Simpson, Garrity, Innes, & Jacuzzi, P.C., will discuss the latest travel time rules and wage and hour regulations so you can stay in compliance with California’s travel pay “road rules”, and out of court.
