Failure to Pay for Travel Time


Under California law, an employer must pay its employees for all hours worked.  This includes time spent traveling on the employer’s business.  In addition to normal business travel, this means that an employer has to pay employees for time spent traveling between job sites during the work day or travel back to the main office or other company location at the end of the day.  It also means that the employer has to pay an employees who report to work at one location then travel to another location for training for their time spent traveling.  The employer may pay the employees at a lower rate of pay, but the employees must receive compensation.  In addition, the employer may have to pay mileage expenses to employees who use their own vehicles on company related business.
