Hello and welcome,
You are not normally entitled to pay for your daily commute to and from your place of business.
However, any travel from your initial place of business to another work place is considered work time normally. In addition, any out of town travel, including time driving to the airport, sitting on the airplane, or riding in a taxi is considered work time. This is work time even if it is done at night or on a weekend. Unless you are exempt from the wage and hour laws, you are entitled to pay for these hours and overtime pay, if applicable.
If the employer is not adhering to overtime laws, it is normally best to file a complaint with the state labor board for investigation and collection of the back wages owed.
