Determining How to Pay Hourly Employees for Travel Time

Often employers believe that hourly employees don’t have to be paid for time spent away from their regular duties and travelling between work locations or attending work functions and seminars. However, wage and hour laws contain very technical rules that govern when an employee must be paid for travel times before, during, and after an employee’s regular work day. Employers who are unfamiliar with these legal requirements could face liability for up to 3 years of unpaid regular and overtime wages.
