We have a technician who has to go to Tennessee for a week long training class.
I have two questions,

1. is the time he travels on the airplane considered travel time, thus should be paid by employer.

2. The company refuses to get him a rental car. If he wants to drive anywhere when he is there, it is up to him. The hotel provides a shuttle to and from the school, but not to dinner, etc.

Can you tell me if he should be getting a rental car from them?
