Pay for NH Orientation
Currently new hires spend 4 hours their first day of employment in orientation. Some of this time they complete various forms for HR and payroll. We are now changing our orientation process and instructing employees that they must complete all forms on line (though a portal) prior to their first day of hire. This may take employees, anywhere from 5 - 20 minutes of time. I was told that this time is not compensable. Would this be considered De minimis? Or should the employee actually be paid for this time?
