Per Diem Pay

Thanks for all the info. I understand it better now. However, there is still this money missing so.....maybe time to look for another company to drive for. Thanks again, this info has been an education in itself.

Per Diem Pay

I did that today. But I never opted for it. And I'm still out $935.00! I just have to learn the language of this side of the industry I guess. But this just doesn't sound right in so many ways.

Per Diem Pay

I don't recieve any money. They don't send me the $55.00 at anytime by any means. But there it is on my paystub as $935.00 for per diem for this pay period. Is it just me or are they robbing me?

That $935.00 is deducted from my gross pay. They say to save me in taxes! Then it should be added back??? I don't get it.

Per Diem Pay

I know what per diem means and the company I drive for said they would pay me $55.00 per diem. Cool. Then when they do my paycheck they remove the per diem so as not to tax it, Cool too. Now, they don't put that per diem back onto my paycheck!? They say it comes out of my check 'cos its up to me to pay it???? I don't agree. Either they are paying my per diem or they are simply loaning me the per diem. In the end my check is over $900.00 short. I don't even use that much per diem so.....? I am confused and they just make me more confused when I talk to them about it. Can you help me understand? And is this right? I don't think it sounds legal. Thanks Chris.
