    Assuming you are a nonexempt (generally speaking, hourly-paid) employee, legally they only have to pay you, when travelling as a passenger, for those hours where the travel coincided with your regularly scheduled work hours, even if the travel occurred on a nonscheduled work day.

    What is your regular schedule and when did you fly? How did you get to/from the airport, how long did that take, and when during the day did this take place?

      Unpaid Hours

      Regular hours are 6:00 a.m.- 3:00 p.m. monday-friday. Trip started at 5:00 a.m. Friday and ended at 3:00 p.m. Worked from 7 a.m.- 3 p.m. on Saturday. Headed back at 4:00 p.m. Sunday and got back at 12:30 a.m. Monday. Time to and from airport they will pay for.

      Thanks For The Info.

        Then they must pay you as follows:

        Friday - 6 am to 3 pm
        Saturday - 7 am to 3 pm
        Sunday - 4 pm to 5 pm

        They are doing more than is legally required by paying you for the travel time to and from the airport if that occurred outside your regularly scheduled hours. Sorry I don't have better news, but that's the law.

          Thank You for all your information. I appreciate your time, helping me with this issue. Next time I will have hours approved before I leave, or I will stay home.

            That's up to you. Just keep in mind that you can be fired for refusing to travel if your employer wants/needs you to.
            The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
