I am having a problem with a travel time rule in my company. Let me explain, first off I work from out of my house, the company is actually located several states away from me. I get paid from the time I leave in the morning until I get home. Generally I work 40-45hrs a week. The problem arises when I work any time past my normal 8 they pay me straight time instead of OT calling it travel time.
If I work a call on the weekend I get paid OT for when I am on site and straight time or (travel time) when I am driving to the site.
Is this legal?? How do other companies work it??
I recently changed left my position at another company to take this job and I think i made a big mistake. What do you guys think??
