Travel Pay: Handling it Correctly 2018
Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Oregon, OR, USA - Mar 30, 2018 - Edupliance announces webinar titled, “Travel Pay: Handling it Correctly 2018” that will concentrate on the requirements under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) of when to pay employees for traveling. And will cover if traveling outside of the employee’s normal work hours constitutes hours worked or not. What if the employee travels overnight or all in a day’s work—which one must be paid for and why? And she will discuss the various state requirements when they differ from the federal. The event goes LIVE on Monday, April 02, from 01:00 PM to 02:00 PM, Eastern Time.
Many recent changes in federal and state wage and hour rules as well as economic pressures on employers and employees alike can create a situation that can practically invite noncompliance lawsuits—especially if the travel time results in overtime being owed to the employee. But it isn’t just the DOL that is interested in travel pay. The IRS also has strict regulations on when employees can be paid for travel expenses without it being considered wages. Does the company use the per diem method to reimburse employees or the accountable plan method? Or do you even need to have a method when it comes to reimbursing employees for travel expenses?
The 90-minute webinar will be conducted by Dayna Reum, an expert who heavily involved in the payroll field over 17 years. Starting as a payroll clerk at a small Tucson company, Dayna moved on to be a Payroll Team Leader at Honeywell Inc. During Dayna’s time at Honeywell she obtained her FPC (Fundamental Payroll Certification) through the American Payroll Association. She also received several merit awards for Customer Service and Acquisitions and Divestitures.
