On the clock?

As far as paying by the hour, do you include the time your workers are riding with you to and from the job sites?

Yeah, but when is punch in time? Can it be once the worker starts actually working, or when he's riding to work? There's a little flexibility in "punch in/punch out" for me. I'm sure most, if not all states says while riding to and from, but I wanted to know what everyone else was doing.
I don't have an office site. But if they ride with me to the site, they should be on the clock?

If they are meeting at your house/office and you say start time is 8am then that is the time they start.

hmm,...but my point is, I wouldn't say "start time" until they get behind the mower. Is this ethical is the question.

If they meet me at the shop I pay when we get in truck but if I have to pick them up I pay from when we get to first job.

Legally you must pay from the time they first start work until they are done working. If they have to load tools etc. pay starts right away. If they just get in the truck and ride, pay doesn't have to start until the reach the job and start working, same at end of day. Between jobs, pay must continue. Myself I pay shop back to shop. It makes for a happier crew.
