Q: Department managers conduct monthly meetings in person and via Skype for employees who are off, so they don’t have to come in and attend the meetings. Must we pay a minimum amount of hours?

A: The employees who attend meetings via Skype aren’t any different from employees who attend in person, so they must be paid for at least the time they spend online. Whether you have to pay for a minimum amount of time is controlled by states’ reporting pay laws. For example, if you’re located in California, you must pay employees for at least two hours.
