Tip of the Week: Paying Attention to Travel Time
Filed under: News
Vision Payroll

How does the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) apply to travel time? How is weekend time handled if it combines business time and personal time? Must employees be paid for commuting if it’s done in company-owned vehicles?

Learn the answers to these questions and much more in this month’s HRCast, a recording provided by our team of HR Pros and available exclusively on MyHRSupportCenter. You’ll learn more about the rules covering these four types of travel:

  1. Portal-to-portal travel
  2. Travel between work sites in a single day
  3. Special one-day assignments
  4. Overnight travel

Mistakes made in this area can be costly and employers must be familiar with the rules to ensure proper treatment.

Visit MyHRSupportCenter regularly not only for our HRCasts, but also to get late-breaking compliance alerts, best practices to implement, and HR tools to use every day. If you’re not yet signed up or would like a free trial of MyHRSupportCenter, contact Vision Payroll today.
