  • Driving over 20 hrs per week un-paid? Federal Florida

    Hello, I work for a National Corporation and hold a position that requires me to drive a considerable amount every day I work. I spend typically about 4 hours driving a day and work between 8-10 hrs a day making for a 12-15 hr day because of my lunch hour. I was told I would be compensated for my drive time and to keep track. Then when it comes to being paid I'm told its only if I get called from one location to another. However, other individuals besides my supervisors that are in upper management level are telling me that they should be paying me for my time if its over 1 1/2 hrs from home one way. What are the legalities on this?

    Explain what you do for a living. I'm confused. Are you reporting to work, then driving to a job site, then driving to another job site?

      I am a market trainer for a retail company, I leave my home and go to different locations from 20 minutes to 3 hrs from my home. Sometimes I get called to another location and have to clock out between. However, I was told that I would be paid drive time from home if it was an excess amount, but now I'm told only if its between stores.

        Travel time from home to 1st job site & from last job site is not compensable worked hrs. However, any travel in between job site to job site is compensable worked hrs, and any hrs over 40 hrs in a workweek is compensable at time 1/2, if worker is a non-exempt worker.

          And, as a trainer, I'm thinking the OP could very possibly meet the criteria for exempt status.

          Dreamin, first of all, are you paid on an hourly or salaried basis? If salaried, is the salary at least $455/week?
          I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

              Then file a claim with your state's department of labor.
