Travel Time, On-call, and Training Pay: How to Comply with FLSA Rule for Overtime-eligible Employees - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to comply with FLSA rules concerning travel time, training time, and on-call pay.

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?

Use this on-demand webinar with Attorney Shannon Finley of Pettit Kohn 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.

After attending this webinar, you’ll be able to:

  • Recognize key factors that determine when travel time or on-call time can be considered compensable work time 
  • Apply 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 
  • Identify whether travel between job sites is compensable under federal law 
  • Handle pay-related issues for employees who telecommute, either occasionally or full-time
  • Correctly pay for on-call time—even if the employee isn’t working during that time—and when you don’t owe the worker any additional compensation
  • Draft effective travel/overtime/on-call policies for your organization, so you’re in compliance with the FLSA
