I guess you should change your user name. Withouth knowing all the details there is a 89.56% you are getting screwed.

I won't change my name, you see my avatar, and I am truly a David fighting a goliath.  I fight for things when I am right.  I always wonder why in life, I am the chosen one for hassling.

Content - I take it the company with the "Blue Hats" happens tp be the one I work for - Give me a shout when you get a chance so you can run down the whole situation for me and then I can look into it on this end to find out what the issue is and hopefully get you any money owed.

Thanks

I first worked for that company with the blue hard hats in 1984.  In all the years and jobs since, I have always been paid what I was told I would be paid - travel, per diem, wages, and, when applicable, bonuses.  A few times they have managed to surprise me by paying me more than I thought they would.  I wonder if some of these issues aren't self-inflicted because someone didn't make sure of the rules BEFORE the fact instead of complaining after the fact.

I am confused, maybe not getting the whole story... are you asking for the mileage home and back paid per mile
at the federal rate (or the rate specified in the contract)... or are you asking for reimbusement of the train
ticket home and mileage back?  Or train ticket and other expenses (hotel, meals, etc) on the way home?

just curious...

I only asked for the train ride home and full travel back.  I am stating, however, according to the Travel section, if you travel under $600 miles per day you should not have to show any documentation.

I just read the section in the handbook.  My interpretation of it is that the receipts that they want are just to verify that you did indeed go home, this does not mean that they will pay those expenses. 

This would come into play if you (generally) went from plant A to home, then from home to plant B in less than a 7 day period.  This is to cover them with the utility in case someone who worked in (example) Michigan, had 4 days off and then went to work in Penn... their home is in Oregon...  pretty hard to say you drove there and back in 4 days.  Sometimes there may be a reason you had to go home in that small window, an airline ticket and boarding pass would prove you did.

  I do not see anything in there that says they will pay anything other than the mileage.

again, this is just my opinion, I am not the expert in these matters...
but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express once... :D

I wish they would pay the mileage.  The trip was over weeks ago, and they haven't  paid a dime.

Now that supporting documentation has been provided the issue has been resolved and the check has been cut. 

Content1 - I appreciate your patience and cooperation in providing the documentation needed in order to get you reimbursed.   

As I've stated time and time again, should you have a problem, issue or concern w/how things are done, be it recruiting, expense reimbursement, pay roll, diem, etc... please contact me so that I can look into things and work  to get your issues resolved, concerns addressed and problems fixed.   


Y'all have a fantastic Memorial Day, and may God bless our military personnel both past and present.

Are we devolving in the area of per diem?  The Army job in Iowa is advertised at $46/day.  I don't know if you can even find rooms at that rate, let alone buy food.

You mean 30x46= $1380/month wouldn't cover a modest apartment or weekly rate at a no-tell motel, plus McD's breakfast and supper at a local buffet? ;)

Housing is provided as part of the employment package,...

the $46.00/day is for M&IE,...

So you are fully compensated since the M&IE rate for the area is $46/day. Sounds like a good deal if you don't mind spending ~6 months in Iowa.

At Duane Arnold per diem was double that.  Iowa is not that much cheaper than anywhere else.

So you received double the GSA rate?
GSA combined rate is $129/day
Housing is $83 per GSA. In this case housing is provided so the $83 doesn't apply.
M&IE is $46 per GSA. Which you would be compensated for.

I guess I have a hard time seeing where you would be getting the short straw on this deal. No rent or utilities to be responsible for and they are paying full rate for M&IE.

Housing provided is a double edged sword.  Is individual or shared?  Is internet and cable provided?  Are kitchens included or must you eat out?  This is not the normal situation for contractors.  Those of us who served in the military like to get away from work when we are off.

Been through the "BOQ" lodging provided (single room with bath) (nice kitchen if you want to eat alone) and much nicer accommodations.

If you like the rate take it, if you don't someone else will!

Part of the great secret.  We try to live on as little as possible to pocket the excess money like a pay raise.  When they provide the room, you loose that benefit. The whole purpose of a job is not to see the USA on your resume', it is to make and keep as much net money as possible.  It is the capitalist's way.

just so long as you are telling the IRS you are doing that,...

and do not paint ALL nukeworkers with the same broad brush,...

pay is pay,...

per diem is per diem,...

and the expectation is that ALL the per diem is used to cover ALL of the expenses,...

per diem IS NOT a pay raise nor is it pay,...

pay is taxable,...regardless of the income source,...

to admit otherwise is to scoff the law,...

scoffing the law is not nuclear,...

can we move past this now?!?!?!?!?

True, and getting closer to or at the GSA rate allows you live a little easier while on the road.

Not likely, it is just some people's nature to complain. Some people could crap gold bricks and complain about their butt hurting.
