In my experience, a company will either pay an extra 'per diem' flat rate (that varies with the location), or will pay actual expenses. Both should be over and above the normal salary or hourly rate.

There is a government web page (sorry I don't have the URL) that lists the government per diem rate by location. Your corporate travel department might have a similar listing.


Question for all listserv contractors:

I am considering temporarily relocating to take a contract position. In such situations, is per diem:

* A separate bucket of money above and beyond hourly pay?

* A percentage of the hourly pay?

All responses appreciated.
