Has your fleet adjusted driver pay to account for per diem law change?

As detailed in a report last week on CCJ, some carriers are considering — or have already implemented — altered pay packages for drivers to help make up for the loss of the per diem deduction tax benefit to company drivers. To help offset the change, fleets are adding per diem reimbursements to drivers’ pay, which are mostly tax free earnings to drivers. They also provide a tax benefit to fleets, too.
