  • Employer not paying for travel - Florida

    In most cases the employer does not have to pay for travel to and from jobs sites.

    However, It's my understanding that if the employer requires an employee to travel to the shop, pick up a company vehicle, load it, then drive it to a job site. then after the job is finish, reload that truck off the clock and return it to the shop before going home, then they must pay for that time as time worked.

    is this true?

    Another case, the employer pays for only 30 mins for travel even if the travel is 7 hours.

    Yes, the clock starts once the employee arrives at the employer's location and begins performing work for them. That includes loading and unloading any materials required to do the job.

    Not enough details on the paying for 30 minutes to comment.
    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.

      The rules are the federal FLSA regulations 29 CFR 785.33 - 785.41. I am going to suggest you read these regulations.
