It looks like I might be going to Calgary with my company and coworkers to do a presentation/event to launch our product to a bunch of investors..
Anyways, I have never traveled for work before, so I was wondering if you could clarify when I do or do not get paid.. I get paid an hourly wage so that is where it seems different for me since usually you are on salary when you go away on trips and don't have to worry about this..
I know they would have to pay for my plane ticket (and probably hotel room), but I am mostly concerned about when do I start charging them for my time?
Would I start from the moment I leave my house (or work) to the airport? When I am on the plane? Or only when I touch down and start working? I'm not sure how long we are going to be there and what they will expect me to do.. Do I charge them for my meals and stuff there? See I have no idea what I do in this kind of situation :P The sole purpose for me to go to Calgary is to attend our presentation dates and times and help the directors with our investors..
I don't want to over charge them or I don't want to get gipped out of hours either.. Any information or help would be greatly appreciated
