    one more question oh great ones
    if we need to check in once a week
    are we supposed to get paid from home to the office in the morning?
    I added this law here because it seems to fit this part of the case

    Yes there are.

    Bugjuice; Companies will prosecute any theft of product, supplies, or services they come upon. They will also cut any people that are producing less than "normal." It will look bad on your resume or record to be fired for malfeasance. If you are that unhappy, find another job ASAP!

    Your company is doing nothing illegal.

    The cost of doing business. I had a service area that was 150 miles X 50 miles. SF Bay area traffic. 8 AM to Midnight some days. Does your job sound better now? I could go from one corner to the other at a phone call.

    Can you get your other job back? (Do you want it?)

    Personal advice. Get an IPOD and some great tunes. Enjoy your travel time. AH~~ To be young and able to work hard again!

    You have some thinking to do. What your company is doing is legal.

    Good luck.

    thanks for the last two replies
    I have been doing most of those (filling the water) no place for gas on that route(we have to go to a certain place)
    I still have to fax the paperwork over
    I'm just having a hard time adjusting I guess
    as far as wear and tear (on the car)I only lived about 7min from work so that wasn't a big deal
    and its hourly pay
    so I look it like this
    on average I lost about 9 hours in one week (but not lost by law)


    I really do appreciate the replies guys

    Are you doing service work for a company (Example; plumbing at customers business/home) or are you working for a company doing work at their company controlled locations?

    If you are working on commission (plumber) or servicing a companies equipment (straight wage) does make a difference. The commission worker does not get paid for travel between jobs.

    Either way, they are providing you with free transportation and saving you a bundle in wear and tear on your vehicle. Any job in this economy is a good one.

    The law is clear on this. See the first few responses.

    Different companies have different set ways of paying service people. As long as you make at least minimum wage, (on average) they are in the clear.

    Your solution is simple.

    Do your paperwork after each job. Fill up during the day, and clean the truck at the same time. Fill your water jug up in the afternoon, between jobs.

    BTW, how will you get home after your last job?

    Every job has its trade offs. Service work pays better, but has the travel. You can go pack to looking at the same thing 8 hours a day, but where is the mental stimulation in that? I enjoyed talking to all the different people every day, and fixing things that nobody else could.

    When I worked service work, the job paid a minimum charge. If the charge was 1 hr, and the job took 1/2 hour, I made out. Either way, I averaged more then than most people did by being nice to the schedulers and customers. A box of pastry works wonders. Filling out your invoice at the customers location is chargeable time. You can also explain what happened at the same time, and build customer relations.

    thats OK
    I like punching in doing my job and punching out and going home
    this working out of the house works for some but not me

    the company isnt routing the route so I finish near my home like they do for the other techs

    If you say so. But you won't be paid for that time at any other job, either.

    There are no circumstances under which the law requires that you be paid for the time before you reach the first job site, or after you leave the last job site. Putting gas in the vehicle is irrelevant.
