  • WV travel time

    I drive a company issued truck with company issued tools and materials (required for work) to different jobsites each day. I am only paid to travel after I have crossed a state line. If I go anywhere regardless of time or distance in state (WV) it is not considered time worked. I have no definite reporting location other that where they tell me to go that day.

    Is this a legal situation or should I be paid in state too?

    You go from your home to each job, then job to job, then job to home? The employer should be compensating you for the time between jobsites, absolutely. The first and last jobs of the day become more problematic, because you do not have a regular place of employment. File a claim for unpaid wages for the travel time between job sites with your state Dept. of Labor. You can also query them about the first/last jobs of the day.
    I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.
