I have an IIF statement at a group level expression field that doesn't seem to be working correctly.

This test evaluates correctly to 0 on the group in question:
=iif( Sum(Fields!hours.Value)=0 or Sum(Fields!fees.Value)=0,0,1)

But when I replace it with what I need, I get an error:
=iif( Sum(Fields!hours.Value)=0 or Sum(Fields!fees.Value)=0,0,Sum(Fields!fees.Value)\Sum(Fields!hours.Value))

[rsRuntimeErrorInExpression] The Value expression for the textrun ‘grpChHr.Paragraphs[0].TextRuns[0]’ contains an error: Attempted to divide by zero.

Any help appreciated.

SSRS scripts evaluate both cases of the IIF expression - that is why it is failing. (Also, I assume that the backslash in your posting is just a typo and is not in the actual code.) So you should do something to avoid evaluating that - for example like this:
sum(fields!fees.value)/iif(Sum(Fields!hours.Value)=0, Nothing,Sum(Fields!hours.Value))	
Not sure if that is the exact syntax, but something along those lines.
