Travel Time
National Summary
There are travel time rules that apply to time spent traveling to another location for a special assignment, substantial travel for an emergency outside the normal working hours, and time spent traveling during regular work hours as part of the employee’s principal job duties. There are rules for when an employee reports to a central location to pick up equipment before proceeding to his or her assigned worksite. Overnight travel or travel away from home is work time when it cuts across the employee’s normal workday and/or requires the employee to work on weekends or days when he or she would not otherwise be required to work.
