When traveling as a passenger in a car, bus, plane, etc., if one does work of any kind during this time, the portion of the time spent doing work is compensable. However, if no work is conducted leaving the employee free to relax, time spent traveling as a passenger in a car, bus, plane, etc., is not compensable.
Yes, excluding regular commute time.
No, unless some form of work is being conducted while traveling between locations.
If a regular work day is on a Saturday or Sunday, then on that day, work-related driving, except regular commute time, is compensable. Time spent traveling as a passenger during regular work hours is compensable. On regular work days, time spent traveling as a passenger outside of regular work hours is not compensable, unless it’s during what the Department of Labor describes as “a special one-day assignment in another city”, meaning the totality of the travel and work is completed in one day, or work is conducted during this time, in which case the time spent working is compensable.
On a non-work day, regardless of when it falls during the week, travel time spent as a driver either during or outside of hours that correspond with regular work hours, excluding regular commute time to a worksite, is compensable. However, time spent traveling as a passenger on a non-work day is not compensable, unless it’s during hours that correspond with the employee’s regular work hours, or work is conducted during this time, in which case the time spent working is compensable.
Yes. If you are traveling during your regular work hours, or during corresponding work hours on a non-work day, your regular meal period time will be unpaid time.
No. Your commute from your hotel, etc., to the workplace where you are temporarily working while traveling is the same as your regular commute time, and not compensable. However, if commute time in these circumstances is considerably longer than one’s regular commute time, the time in excess of regular commute time is compensable.
No. Driving to the airport is considered time spent commuting to the workplace, and is not compensable. Compensable travel time would begin when you arrive at the airport.
