Traveling a confusing and dangerous road – FLSA Travel Policy for Non-Exempt Employees
Many companies do not understand how to compensate an employee properly for time spent traveling to destinations other than a regular work site.
There are travel time rules that apply to time spent traveling to another location for a special assignment, substantial travel for an emergency outside the normal working hours, and time spent traveling during regular work hours as part of the employee’s principal job duties. There are rules for when an employee reports to a central location to pick up equipment before proceeding to his or her assigned worksite.
This content packed 60-minute webinar will enable you to understand how and when to compensate an employee for travel time away from a work site. You will find out how to determine which employees are entitled to travel time pay and at what rate.
Why should you attend:
Compensating employees for the hours spent traveling on business is becoming one of the major concerns of the payroll department today. The recent changes in federal and state wage and hour rules as well as economic pressures on employers and employees alike can create a situation that can practically give an invitation to noncompliance travel time lawsuits.
