Why Should You Attend:
What laws dictate reimbursements of expenses incurred while traveling on company business? Can we reimburse for direct expenses without compensating for travel time? Issues include proper compensation for certain travel time and times when it does not have to be compensated, reimbursements for use by an employee of his or her own vehicle vs. use of a company owned vehicle, proper administration of and accounting for travel pay, and the best way to handle suspected abuses by employees of an employer’s travel and entertainment expense reimbursement policy.
This webinar will provide a clear understanding of the various laws affecting travel time. It will identify the risks to a company relating to employee accidents while traveling, even when merely driving to lunch. This webinar will also explain how to comply with an organization’s compensation and reimbursement obligations and reduce risk of corporate liability for the acts of employees.

The Portal Act was enacted in 1947 to amend the Fair Labor Standards Act to address compensation for travel time and establish a statute of limitations for making claims for unpaid wages and overtime pay. This law is viewed by many as quite ambiguous.
The IRS regulates deductibility of reimbursements of travel and entertainment expenses. Using their definitions and following their guidelines companies can maximize the deductibility of their properly documented business travel, meals and entertainment expenses. Apply their guidelines for determining when an employee meal is 100% deductible and when it is only 50% deductible. Understand the limitations on personal travel and entertainment mixed with business travel and entertainment. Ensure that your records will stand the scrutiny of a compensation or tax audit.
