Travel Pay Road Rules: Who's Entitled to Travel Pay, and When, Under the FLSA

Live Webinar: Monday, February 26, 2018
1:30 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. EST

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!
