Compensation for travel work time is covered under the Portal-to-Portal Act of 1947.
One type of travel which is not covered by this law is commuting time. Similarly, for FLSA-exempt employees, normal commuting time from home to work and from work to home is not hours of work. There are instances when travel from home to work is considered work time and the employee must be compensated. If an employee must leave home to travel a substantial distance to attend an emergency situation, then home-to-work travel may be compensated. This video reviews home to work travel, travel time in employer vehicles, special assignments and travel between worksites.
