  • labor law and drive time

    My questions if employees are sent out on a job were they will be staying for a week will they have to be paid drive time. They take a company vehicle to the location where they stay in paid hotels until completion then drive back. I am just trying to figure out if they have to be paid for the time it takes to commute to the location. They are not making calls or handling any tasks during the drive.

      I take it we're talking about nonexempt employees here. I'll try to get back to you tomorrow. I have that documentation at work.
      I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

            dsinc, you're best to wait for Patty to get back to you. She has by far the most expertise and knowledge on these sorts of wage and hour issues than any other regular responders (including myself.)

            Or you can always call your State's Department of Labor and ask about this.

              For nonexempt employees, the law only requires that you pay for travel time that occurs within the employee's regularly scheduled work hours, although this also includes such hours on a non-scheduled workday.

              However, although it is not required by law, my experience is that most companies will pay the driver for all time driven, even if it is outside their regularly scheduled work hours, but only pay the passengers as described above.
