Travel Pay


Rules For Determining Travel Pay

Federal regulations establish the baseline rules for travel time pay. State regulations generally follow the federal rules, but in a few cases have stricter requirements.

While travel pay laws vary by state, generally speaking, normal home to work and work to home travel at the beginning of the day and at the end of the work day is not compensable.

However, travel between work sites or an assigned workplace is usually compensable, and usually an employee must be compensated for travel time on their regular days off if it cuts across their regular work hours.

Expenses considered under travel pay typically include:

  • Car rental
  • Airfare
  • Lodging
  • Parking
  • Local transportation system fares
  • Taxi fares
  • Tips
  • Meal charges
  • Mileage
