Generally speaking, Pennsylvania law requires that every employee be paid his full wages for all hours worked for the employer. A question that has been raised is whether the hours worked for an employer covers travel or commuting time. Under Pennsylvania law, an employer must pay for travel time if an employee is required to report to the employer’s establishment for activities such as clocking in or loading up. On the other hand, if an employee leaves directly from home to the job site or vice versa, the law says that this is not paid time.
