Travel Pay in California:
What Employees Must Be Compensated For Under State and Federal Law - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn the rules for ensuring travel pay compliance in California.

Determining when employees are entitled to travel pay should be a simple matter, but in actual practice it’s anything but—especially in California, with its uniquely employee-friendly laws. 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? 

Use this in-depth widely popular on-demand webinar with a California-based attorney who will break down both the state and federal travel pay rules for you—so you can stay in compliance and out of court.

You’ll learn:

  • Key factors in determining when travel time equals work time 
  • The basic rules of travel pay compliance at the California and federal levels 
  • How to treat overtime when you’re paying travel time at a different rate than regular work hours (the blended rate) 
  • Whether travel between job sites is compensable under California rules 
  • How to tell when compensation may be owed for overnight travel or time spent at training programs, seminars, and conferences 
  • The special factors that could change your travel pay obligations, such as when employees drive their own vehicles or respond to work-related emergencies 
  • If and when telecommuters may be entitled to compensation for their travels 
  • Best practices for drafting an effective travel pay policy for your organization, to comply with California and federal law 
  • And much more! 

Learn the latest updates, as well as the basics on the California “road” rules of wage and hour.
