Business Travel For Hourly Employee

Postby seager » Mon Nov 28, 2016 4:40 pm

My husband is an hourly employee for a company, and is preparing to leave for Haiti for 3 days to film a documentary.  What are the laws regarding pay for an hourly associate.  Should he be paid during travel and when he's working?  Please reference if you can where I can find this in any law.

Business Travel For Hourly Employee

Postby Layton » Thu Dec 08, 2016 7:29 pm

Travel is paid for any time that crosses his regularly scheduled workday. If he is scheduled to work from 8 to 5 than he must be paid for any travel that falls into that period of time, even if it is on a weekend.

He also must be paid for any time he works even if it is after these hours. if it is over 40 hours than he must be paid for overtime. There are some rules specific to the filming industry. Check out the Website at the U.S. Department of Labor under FLSA.

Travel Time Time spent traveling during normal work hours is considered compensable work time. Time spent in home-to-work travel by an employee in an employer-provided vehicle, or in activities performed by an employee that are incidental to the use of the vehicle for commuting, generally is not "hours worked" and, therefore, does not have to be paid. This provision applies only if the travel is within the normal commuting area for the employer's business and the use of the vehicle is subject to an agreement between the employer and the employee or the employee's representative.http://www.dol.gov/dol/topic/workhours/traveltime.htm
