Required off hour drive time?
I have a question regarding my husband's employer.
He is a technical/sales representative who drives a company vehicle.
His manager recently gave him a schedule that requires him to be west of Toledo on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8-5. That would necessitate him leaving home at 5:30 and not getting home until 7 or 8. The store he works out of is based in Brook park so that is only 40 minutes from our home.
Can an employer require this without paying for his drive time? (He is salaried, but not in a supervisory role over anyone.)

Re: Required off hour drive time?
If his primary responsibility as a salaried employee is outside sales, then the employer is not required to pay for extra hours worked (which would defeat the purpose of him being salaried in the first place). That he has no supervisory responsibilities has no bearing on the issue.
