    That would be in the CA-DLSE manual, chapter 46. Also several opinion letters, but the manual references those.

    Thank you for your quick response. Do you know what the CA law is regarding our situation? Or where I could find the text that would apply?

    Thanks again.

    The short answer is, if this is really optional, then under federal labor law anyhow (FLSA) the trip from the office to the worksite is not hours worked. If this somehow becomes not optional, then the trip is hours worked. While the rules are clear, "facts" sometimes are not clear. I would want to able I could support my version of the facts in court in necessary.

    This is federal labor law (employees) only. State law is whatever the state says it is. Law for workers who are not employees is something other then labor law (mostly contract law).

    contractor question

    My husband and I own a small construction company in California. We give our employees the option of meeting at our shop and riding in the company truck to the jobsite or driving to the jobsite in their own vehicle. Are we required to compensate them for the driving time to and from the jobsite if they choose to ride in the company truck?

    Thank you!
