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.

Lawyers are making a good living by sueing employers that try to screw their employees out of pay.

This is my question. What kind of recourse do I have against an employer that only paid for morning drive time? This was almost 15 years ago but was one of 2 reasons I left the company. They would meet a 7am and give a list of repairs for the day we we on the clock till the last one was completed and then drive back to the shop was on us. there were many days where the drive home was close to 2 hours of unpaid time which would have meant alot of OT as I normally got 45 to 50 hours on the clock.

You're going to lose more money in turnover than you'll save by not paying somebody for 30 seconds

No different if you owned a store and paid the clerk only for the time they were checking someone out. In the end it will cost less to pay ,then it is to pay a lawyer to figure out how much you'll owe in back pay and taxes and fines.
