What Is Drive Time?
Travel Time According to the U.S Dept Of Labor
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.
Should You Be Getting paid For “time on the road.”
Travel to work or work site
Travel from a central work location to an outlying work site is considered compensable. If any work is engaged in before traveling to a different location, then the travel time is compensable. If you arrive at a central location to load equipment and receive assignments before departing for outside work you must be paid for your travel time to the outlying location.
Travel to another location
If you are required to go to another facility and you are required to travel two hours away to fill in at another work site you should get paid for your travel time.
If an employee is required to travel away from home, all time spent traveling during regular working hours (regardless of the day of the week) is compensable time.
