Customer Question

I am required to travel to another location for training. My non-profit corp doesn't pay for the time on the road. Is this legal?

Why does my email show that you have answered my question but I see no answer...just "loading data". What the heck is that?

Again, you want a rating and I have not seen an answer. I'm very frustrated!

Expert:  Irwin Law replied 4 years ago.

In Indiana, if the time on the road is during working hours it is covered by the Indiana Minimum Wage laws. It would be considered either regular time or overtime. The employer is bound by any employment agreement. If such compensation is not covered or limited there then you would be bound by the terms of the agreement. Non-profit or for profit makes no difference. For more general information, see:

This was very frustrating. I want a refund!

Please tell me what do you disagree with in my Answer? Please explain your frustration. Thanks.

Expert:  Irwin Law replied 4 years ago.
I apologize for your frustration with my Answer. What I thought I said was that your travel during working hours counts as hours worked and you must be paid for it. If it isn't, then you may file a claim with the Indiana Department of Labor.

Again, I believe this whole experience is a scam! You wanted me to allow you to take $80 minimum from my account just to file a request for a refund of the first $33!
