I understand the law regarding travel time to be paid to employees, however is it legal for a company to have some sort of waiver (signed by employee) with stipulations regarding this??

It is NH. Companies can pretty well do what they please. I would expect the company to have some sort of procedure for recording travel time and an agreement on pay rates

Two words: At. Will.

This means an employer can require you to do whatever they want you to do.

Don't like it ?
Don't work there.

Nobody's forcing you to work there.

I once had an employee who lived much further away from place of employment then other employees. He wanted extra pay because he lived so far away from work.

He asked for more pay/money. What would you have told him?

Move closer, and if the distance is less the the average of all the other employees, you will get a pay cut.

unit731- if the employee was valuable enough I might give him a gasoline only credit card. In any case I would negotiate.

FWIW - I think all salaries should be posted on the company bullitin board or website. That way the best would know they were being paid more than the slackers.

Move or find another job closer to your home.

Paying for travel time to and from work is not commonly done anywhere, as you are not considered to be "on duty" during that time in most jobs. What type of work are you talking about?

What type of travel time are you talking about? As far as I know you basically have 3 kinds:

1) Commute time to/from work (I don't know anywhere that pays you for this)
2) Travel time to go to special work locations, ie- the day you travel from the east coast to the west coast to attend a conference/meeting/event, etc (most places consider this part of your work day and you're usually paid for a normal day).
3) Travel time for a traveling job (sales, etc), this really depends on a lot of factors.

To everyone else responding- I'm assuming the OP isn't talking about her daily commute...

A simple "I don't offer that" would suffice. Absolutely no reason to be confrontational just because they asked.
