Both the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the Department of Labor (DoL) have requirements that need to be met when considering compensable travel pay. The requirements for this segment of pay have to be met from gross pay and overtime calculation.

Many components go into making this calculation. Factors such as one day assignment but overnight concerns, waiting time, meeting and training regulations come into play. Making these calculations rightly is important to meet the requirements set out by the DoL and the IRS. The requirements of both these departments have to be satisfied if incorrect entries have to be avoided.

Knowledge of how to apply them is important

Further, IRS regulations need to be grasped properly for gaining understanding of taxable and non-taxable expenses such as how to properly handle spousal travel and frequent flyer miles.

This requires a proper understanding of the way the requirements are set out by these two departments, plus clarity of how to apply them. This is the teaching a webinar from TrainHR, a leading provider of professional trainings for the human resources industry, will be imparting.
