Travel Pay in 2019: Handling it Properly & Compliantly

Live Webinar | Vicki M. Lambert | From: May 21, 2019 - To: Dec 31, 2019

This training program will discuss the rules and regulations that must be followed when paying an employee for travel pay. The course will elaborate what is travel pay, best practices for handling the payments, how it affects overtime calculations and what is required on the state level. It will also discuss the requirements for taxing travel expenses under IRS rules.

Why Should You Attend:

How to compensate employees for the hours spent traveling on business is becoming one of the major concerns for the payroll department today. 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?
  • Do you need to have a method when it comes to reimbursing employees for travel expenses?

This webinar will address key issues like these and more.
