    Employees, yes, assuming they are nonexempt, because the meeting is mandatory. The fact that you are providing meals is irrelevant.

    Attendance at lectures, meetings, training programs and similar
    activities need not be counted as working time if the following four
    criteria are met:
    (a) Attendance is outside of the employee's regular working hours;
    (b) Attendance is in fact voluntary;
    (c) The course, lecture, or meeting is not directly related to the
    employee's job; and
    (d) The employee does not perform any productive work during such

    ALL of these conditions must be met, otherwise the time is compensable.

    ICs, depends on the provisions in the contract/agreement.
