Do You Have a Claim For Unpaid Travel Time?

Our Ohio wage law attorneys can help

Your employer doesn't have to pay for your commute, but legally, they do have to pay for travel time that is part of your job duties. Some of the most common examples of wage law violations include employers who do not pay for travel during the work day and employers who do not pay for travel to overnight jobs.

The Fair Labor Standards Act ("FLSA") and the Ohio Minimum Fair Wage Standards Act require that employers pay their non-exempt employees an overtime premium for hours worked in excess of 40 in a work week and at least a minimum wage for all hours worked, including travel time that is part of your job. If your employer does not pay its non-exempt employees for certain travel time, it could be violating the law. Nilges Draher LLC can help.

Travel During the Work Day

Are you required to travel to various places during your work day? If so, your employer is required to pay you for the time you spend traveling. In addition, the amount of time you spend traveling must be added to your weekly hours worked.

If your employer does not pay you for this travel time, you may have an overtime or minimum wage claim, or both. We've recovered unpaid overtime for thousands of employees who were not paid for their travel time to and from various job sites throughout their work day. Have you been denied pay for your travel time? Contact us. We can help.

Travel Away From Home That Requires an Overnight Stay

Are you required to travel away from home to job sites where an overnight stay is required? If so, your employer is required to pay you for the time you spend traveling. In addition, the amount of time you spend traveling must be added to your weekly hours worked.
