How to compensate employees for the hours spent traveling on business is becoming one of the major concerns of 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 (Department of Labor) that is interested in travel pay. The IRS (Internal Revenue Services) 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?
This webinar will also include IRS regulations for a better understanding around taxable and non-taxable expenses. We will also learn how to properly handle spousal travel and frequent flyer miles.
The participant will gain valuable knowledge to understand what is considered compensable travel pay from a gross pay and overtime calculation. Real life court cases will be shared to help expand learning.
