I was just curious what every one else was doing when it comes to your employees and travel time. For the most part my employees meet me at the yard in the morning and we leave from there. My foreman who drives the truck always gets paid from the time we leave the yard until he gets back at the end of the day. my question is how do you work the hours on you laborers. when we have to travel 45 min one way i cannot see paying the labors for a free ride to work basically and a free ride home. if we have to load up the trucks in the morning and then head out i always start everyone at that time. but if i am just saving them gas why should i pay them to sit in the truck. i could just tell them to meet us at the job. you should know that we don't do maintenance anymore and that we are mainly a hardscape install company and usually work at the same job for several days or more. thanks for you in put.
