  • Travel time Florida

    I recently worked for a company and my job was cleaning residential homes. I was told that I would be paid only for the time that I was at the home cleaning, not for the travel time to the home and back to the company office. Is this legal?

    Nope, not under the FLSA.
    I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

      You are NOT owed pay for time from home to your first stop of the day.

      You ARE owed pay for time from one location to the next during the work day.

      You are NOT owed pay for time from the last stop of the day back home.
      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.

        What your employer is doing though, as per Patty's link, is not legal under the FLSA.
