I am an employee at a hospital, i am required to go to department meetings at another hospital 30 miles away from my works address. Does my employer need to pay mileage from my work address to my meeting address or do they only have to pay mileage from my residence address?
If you start your day at your normal hospital, and then travel from that hospital to the other one for meetings, you should be reimbursed for the drive from the first hospital to the second. You should also be paid for the time spent traveling. Now, if you drive directly from your home to the other hospital, then it depends on how far the other hospital is from your home in relation to your normal hospital. If your home is closer to the other hospital, then your drive there doesn't get reimbursed. If it's farther away from your home, then you should be paid the difference in mileage.
But you should also be paid mileage for your drive from the hospital where the meetings take place back to your hospital (unless you go straight home). And you should be paid for your travel time.
While I am an attorney with over fifteen years of experience, until we sign a retainer agreement, I am not YOUR attorney. My postings are meant for informational purposes only, and DO NOT constitute legal advice, nor do they create an attorney-client relationship between us. As such, the question, my answer, and any comments left to my answer, are not protected by attorney-client privilege. Also, keep in mind that all legal claims have relevant statute of limitations, some of which can be very short. So, if you believe you need to hire an attorney, and need legal advice, seek out legal representation as soon as possible.
