How do you figure paid work time for techs who have a company vehicle at home and drive directly to a jobsite? Do most of you pay them for any travel time (or have a portion of unpaid)? Our company charges port-to-port and pays our techs for all travel time (whether or not they come into the office first). We're working with another company - techs leave from their homes and are only paid if the jobsite is more than 65 miles away. We were both surprised at the other so are wondering what is more common.
Also we pay a weekly stipend for the on-call tech ($100/wk plus 30 min for any phone call, and OT once they're over 40 hours); the other company does not pay a stipend, but pays double time if techs are sent on a call.
Thought it would be interesting to compare.... thanks!
