Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello, My name is ***** ***** I will assist you today. Please give me a few minutes to write a response and identify any additional resources for you.
From the CA Manual:
That isn't the correct calculation, and that can lead to problems (see: https://donahoo.com/practice-areas/prevailing-wage/unpaid-travel-time/)
There shouldn't be a separate "travel pay" on a prevailing wage job. (See the second link I provided above which discusses this common issue for employers as well).
This sounds like something that may require a local attorney to take a look at (or at a minimum a payroll expert or accountant with experience in prevailing wage law - but if you are an employer, I would suggest going to a lawyer as there may be some issues with the contract to discuss as well).
You are welcome, and I do wish you the best with this matter.
Thank you for using our forum, and please do not forget to rate my service (the series of 5 stars next to the chat window) so that I can receive credit for assisting you.
