Live Webinar: Monday, February 26, 2018

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to comply with federal rules governing employee travel time.


 

Determining when employees are entitled to travel pay should be a simple matter, but in actual practice it’s anything but. If you’ve been in HR for any length of time, you’ve probably wrestled with one or more of the following scenarios: 

  • What if employees travel between different job sites? 
  • What if their flights get cancelled and they are waiting around at or near the airport for several hours (or overnight)? 
  • What if a trip is part business and part pleasure (involving some vacation time) for an employee? 
  • How do 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? 
  • Under what circumstances is commuting to or from home compensable? 


Join us on February 26 for an in-depth webinar on how to apply the federal FLSA rules 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 pay applies to employees who telecommute, either occasionally or full-time 
  • 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 the FLSA 
  • And much more!
