A construction company has charged a customer for per diem

This answer was rated:

A construction company has charged a customer for per diem to cover employee travel related expenses, but did not pay this to the employees or only paid half or less of the amount billed to the customer. This appears potentially inapproriate although may be legal. Is there any legal guidence to consider?
It is legal. An employer can charge various expenses to a customer which it computes when fixed pay but does not pay per project in a direct way. The employee's pay is not connected to such contract terms.
