After Work Meal & Transport Reimbursement - Update 1
Hi HR Practitioners,
If the office hours is from 9 am to 6 pm. After what time will the company be responsible for reimbursement for meal and transport?
And is there any quantum for the meal reimbursement?
Transport: We provide taxi claim if staff work beyond 9:00pm.
Meal: We don't provide meal for staff who work OT but some manufacturing companies do provide their production or engineering staff with S$3.00 meal allowance if they work OT after 7:00pm.
Our company's policy:
Should you need to work beyond 9.00 pm on a normal working day or meeting with clients for business related purposes, weekend or public holiday, you can claim for reimbursements on the following:
● your taxi fare from office to home; and
Payment of Meal and Transport Allowance are up to individual company policies. For our company, we pay $5 Meal Allowance for OT work ends after 8pm. As for Taxi Claims, we allow for OT work that ends beyond 10pm.
Reimbursement of Meal
If the employee is on general work hours (9am to 6pm) then usually free transport is not included but maybe a component of conveyance allowance for tax redemption is inclusive of comp structure. In addition, If the employees are stretching or working beyond due to official requirement then they get transport facility based on required approvals. Again it all depends on the need, geography, role, gender, etc factors.
Hope this helps.
Would suggest to pay for meal reimbursement if employee stays till 8pm and up to S$10/meal for each meal reimbursement. If the location of the office is not near to any food locations that are open for dinner, probably need to increase the amount as they need to order food deliveries.
