  • Travel compensation New York

    What are the compesable travel laws??
    If I normally travel say 27 miles to our shop but now my boss says I have to go 60 miles or more to a jobsite daily (with my own vehicle)for 3 mos at a time,what is his responsibility??

    Shouldnt I be compensated somehow??

    Are you being asked to drive to the shop first, then on to the job site, or are you just now reporting to this jobsite directly from your home?
    I post with the full knowledge and support of my employer, though the opinions rendered are my own and not necessarily representative of their position. In other words, I'm a free agent.

      If you are being required to go to the shop first (to pick up material, a work truck or other workers) then he has to pay you for your time from the shop to the job site, and reimburse you mileage.

      If you are required to drive from home to the job site, then you need not be reimbursed for anything and your time does not need to be paid.
