About The Event
Travel pay computations can be complex and confusing, even for experienced payroll professionals. The FLSA and state wage and hour laws require employers to pay employees for all hours worked and include all hours worked in computing overtime compensation. An employee's total hours include all time spent doing work for the employer including time spent traveling on behalf of the employer.
Different rules apply for commuting, travel away from the employee’s tax home, and local travel between work locations. Rules also vary based on whether the employee is driving a company or personal vehicle or using public transit, and whether the employee is exempt or non-exempt. Some states have enacted travel pay rules that differ from federal guidelines.
In addition, employers may pay different rates of pay for time spent in different types of work, reimburse expenses or provide travel allowances to employees, or provide other types of compensation for time away from home. Where employees receive reimbursement for expenses, specific documentation and reporting rules must be followed or the reimbursement may constitute additional wages to the employee.
The webinar will focus on the following general areas
- Hours worked – hours that must be compensated and hours that count toward overtime
- How to compute regular and overtime pay for employees who travel
- Expense reimbursement plans – accountable and non-accountable plans
- Documenting travel expenses for an accountable plan.
- Using per diem allowances
- Payments that must be included in employee taxable wages.
- Employee travel related administration issues
- Understand how the Fair Labor Standards Act and the Portal to Portal Act affect employer travel pay policy.

- Distinguish between non compensable commuting time and travel time that constitutes hours worked subject to compensation.
- Know when employees are considered working while away from home.
- Understand how the rules apply differently in different situations – Driver or passenger in a vehicle – exempt or nonexempt employee – during normal business hours or non-business hours – weekends or regular business days.
- Know when expense reimbursement must be included in employee wages.
- Distinguish between an accountable and non-accountable employee business expense plan.
