Purpose of this guide

The Employer's Guide to Travel Time helps employers determine when non-exempt employees need to be paid for travel. Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and many related state laws, a non-exempt employee must be paid for all hours in which the employee is “suffered or permitted to work”. This guide addresses the circumstances time spent traveling is considered compensable (e.g., the time is counted as hours worked).

I have worked with several payroll companies over the past 31 years and moving to Complete Payroll back in 2011 was one of my best decisions. It’s difficult to find an organization that is so dedicated to their clients but Complete Payroll never disappoints. I would highly recommend that everyone head over to Payroll Country. You’ll be glad you did.

In the current business climate, owning a small business is very difficult. Having a payroll company that can eliminate all my potential headaches and concerns in one facet of the business is so important. I cannot imagine using anyone other than Complete Payroll.
