4. An employee reports to work at 5:00 a.m. and travels to a point where official business is conducted which is over 30 miles from the official station. The employee returns to the office around noon, and remains in the office until 5:00 p.m. The employee's regularly scheduled workday is 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Is this employee entitled to meal reimbursement?
Yes. Any day that extends the employee's work time three hours or more and includes travel over 30 miles is eligible. In this situation, if the employee's normal lunch break begins at noon or later, breakfast would appear to be the reimbursable meal.
