This may seem a strange question, but my workplace isn't an easy access building. The place I work is a large (several hundred acres), fenced off, limited access campus. There are only a few gates, with guards checking identification at these entry points. Also, random inspections of vehicles are done during the regular work week (Monday - Friday), and all vehicles are inspected on weekends. These inspections can be done on entry or exit to the campus. It usually takes two to three minutes to drive between the gates and the building where my office is.
The short drive from the gate to/from my building does not usually bother me. However, there are slow downs that occasionally occur as I come to and leave work. For example, traffic back ups can occur waiting for the ID check or vehicle inspection; also, when an inspection is done, it usually takes several minutes to complete. Five to ten minutes of delay is common, but I've seen times when the delay has been twenty to thirty minutes.
Obviously, these slow downs often take several minutes, and it's not inconceivable that it could add up to an hour or more. Thus, I wonder if I should add this time to the work time I log when I encounter these delays.
Edit to add detail:
The work location in question is not owned by my employer, which is a (sub)contractor with the organization which owns the facility. I've looked through my employee handbook and there's nothing in it about this.
While I'm salaried, the terms of the contract say all contract workers are supposed to log all time worked. I've had some recent family issues which have forced me to make up time on weekends. On these occasions I am stopped - often for a considerable period - for vehicle inspections.
I have only one charge number for the time I work on this contract. My employer does not supply a separate administrative(?) charge number for time spent in these delays.
When I first came to work here, security was relatively relaxed. However, over time increasing layers have been added which have slowed things down considerably. The most recent addition is the vehicle check upon exiting the facility on weekends. Unfortunately, upper management has never made it clear if or how these things should recorded, and the low level managers with whom I deal are not likely to know more than me.
