Travel time when working from home
Interesting question on another board. Does travel time from home to a work location office that crosses work hours count as hours worked for someone who works from home most of the time. This person goes into the office twice a month for meetings. These meetings occur middle of the day rather than during commute times. Other employees who work at a different office and come to the main office for The same meetings Do you get paid travel time. Of course if the employer has to pay for this travel time there’s always the chance the employer will stop allowing these employees to work from home. I think it’s a bit over-the-top to complain about something that most people consider a timesaver and expensive saver and perq... but I am more thinking the legality of travel time and must it be Paid? What if the employer switch the shift of that employee for that day such that the meeting started at the beginning of their shift? Just curious as to what others thought
