DOL News: Hourly Employees and Travel Time

Updated: Feb 10, 2020


Most businesses that have employees have asked me questions regarding when and how to compensate hourly employees for travel time.

Do we pay for commute to work? Commute to customer's location? Do we pay for time on the airplane?

While the law has not changed, recently the Department of Labor that provides clear guidance for some of the most commonly occurring scenarios.

The opinion does not address overtime payment, so it is important not to overlook that factor.
