About This Course:
Who’s entitled to travel pay? And when? These seem like two straightforward questions, but the fact is these are two loaded questions that employers often struggle with.

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? 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 federal regulations 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
  • 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 much more!
