  • Travel time from office to job site paid for Construction Workers? CA

    I work for a solar energy/construction company in CA. Our job sites are all over the greater Bay Area. Do workers get paid for their travel time from the office to the job site? I have heard some conflicting things- such as that construction workers start their paid day at the work site, and that there is something peculiar about the construction industry and labor law. Then I have heard that if the employee travels directly from their home to the job site that the travel time is not paid, but that if the empoloyee is required to go to the office and pick up vehicles, tools etc. on the way to the site, then the travel time from the office to the site should be paid. Any idea?

    You should be paid from the time you report to the first location your employer requires you to arrive at, until you are released for the day. If you must go to the office each day and eventually are sent to some other location, you should be paid from the time you arrive and begin work at the office. If you are told to go directly to a worksite from your home, then you are paid from the time you arrive and begin work at that worksite.
    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.
