I've contacted the department of labor a few times on this issue and I get slightly different answers on the same subject, but different scenarios. I hope someone with some legal background can chime in. So, the company I work for requires a lot of travel. When we travel, they require us not to clock in and notate where we traveled to and from. The first problem with this is they use google maps to get a best estimate of how much time it takes us to get there regardless of traffic, detours, construction, and stops for gas/restroom - we get shorted hours this way. Then, they take that estimated travel time and add it back on our checks as regular (or vacation) time at the end of the week. So, as clear as day, I'll have 55+ hours per week of regular time on my check. Overtime starts at 40hrs or am I retarded? (I'm not retarded...) I'm totally fine with my 40hrs per week and taking it to the house, but they are requiring 40hrs on the jobsite and the drive time is just a "bonus". I can submit an anonymous complaint with the DOL and start an investigation, but I want to make 100% sure that what's going on is illegal. We aren't Union. So, it makes it a little tougher.
