Apologies for the delay in responding. This from our payroll expert, Alan McEwan:
There isn’t any jurisdiction that has legislation that defines what work is precisely.
However, as a rule of thumb, particularly for hourly paid employees, if an employee has to report for work a location specified by the employer and is then transported to the actual work site, the travel time is considered work. It isn’t as clear whether travel time for salaried employees, i.e. flying to another city to work on a temporary basis, would also be enforced as “work time” by most employment standards.
