I'm an hourly worker at a landscaping company in Los Angeles and travel to a different job site or multiple job sites in a day. The morning and afternoon commute range from 15 minutes to 1.5 hours.
My employer (disorganized startup) suggested that the time they pay us for is only time spent on site. Not including time spent traveling between jobs. This means that even though I have logged 8+ hours in a day that they would only pay mileage for the time traveling between jobs.
I'm an employee and not a contractor, and I am sure this has to be unlawful, but I'm having trouble finding resources regarding my situation. They want to talk to an adviser first and then discuss it tomorrow because I brought up the issue. I'm honestly surprised at this stance, and would like to be prepared if they hold their current stance.
