Travel Pay and Road Rules: Know Who and When to Compensate for Travel and On-Call Time - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Attendees will learn when employees are entitled to travel pay under the Fair Labor Standards Act, and how to stay compliant with federal regulations.

Are your employees asking about travel pay? HR has to grapple with questions about travel pay in many scenarios, and it can be tricky figuring out who’s entitled to compensation for travel—and when. Navigating federal rules on travel pay under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) also can be a challenge—and it’s critical to make the right decisions about who gets paid and for what types of travel.

Needless to say, there are any number of travel-related and work-related scenarios, like:

  • What if workers are traveling between job sites?
  • How do you determine pay for someone who combines vacation travel for pleasure with a necessary business trip?
  • Do you have to pay employees for training time and travel to and from the training?
  • What about non-exempt employees who travel at night or over the weekend for work, when they’re usually off duty?
  • If you contact your on-call employees frequently, do you need to pay them for the down time?
  • Clearly, HR needs a solid navigation tool for understanding when travel and on-call time is compensable.

Use this on-demand webinar on how to comply with federal FLSA regulations concerning employee travel pay and on-call time. You’ll learn the road rules under the FLSA and get the details on who gets paid for travel time and on-call time—and when. In addition, our presenter, a skilled employment attorney will discuss how to handle some of the trickier wage and hour scenarios that could crop up in every day practice.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Decide when travel time can be considered compensable work time for non-exempt employees by knowing the key factors they need to consider
  • Make the right call as to whether commuting time or travel during regular work hours qualifies as paid work time
  • Determine when or if travel between job sites is compensable
  • Learn when an employee’s on-call time is so restricted that the employee cannot use it effectively for personal purposes and must be paid
  • Draft effective travel/overtime/on-call policies for your organization, so you’re in compliance with the FLSA
  • How to avoid making such legal missteps and comply with the FLSA
  • And much more!
