Travel Compensation Attend Out of Town Training
We have an employee who is complaining that due to travel arrangements made for them they had to go to the airport early to catch their flight (outside normal work hours/ during the work week). Their flight did not arrive back home till after normal work hours also during the workweek. Their travel to the training program was during the normal work week and they were gone for several days. They are requesting compensation for the travel outside normal work hours due to travel. After reviewing FLSA and general infomation on HR Laws it does not appear we would have to compensate the hours outside normal work hours. I would appreciate some opinions on this issue.
