If i normally get to work in 3 minutes but i am told to go to training that is 1 hour 20 minutes away should i be getting paid travel time?

 

I am being paid petrol (bar the two miles i travel daily) for the trip.

 

I've been told i will get the 4 hours for the course but that's it!

 

I look forward to your replies.

I think it's quite a grey area in law, and not one I would suggest anyone decide to argue about if they value their employment. Especially since there is no legal entitlement to travel expenses. If it isn't an everday requirement I would suggest just getting on with it.

Is the course in your normal line of work? Then they are paying what they should and not a penny more. All employers have their own procedures on things like this, many are far less forthcoming with the expenses than even this, some will pay any extra costs you have had to undrgo so may include the price of a sandwich but I know that one of the biggest oil co's used to provide packed lunches to people on courses rather than pay them an allowance

Most posters here evoke my sympathey because of he unfairness of the situations they are in with bad or ignorant employers but in your case you have been told what is what but you still want to claim it is unfair when it isnt. You cannot claim money for travelling to work, that is the law. Doesnt matter if it is 3 minutes on foot or 3 hours by train, the taxman says is the same, you chose to apply for the job and knew where the place of work was and what you would need to do from the outset. Get a job as a travelling rep if you want to get paid for driving. As you are getting paid for the time there you are better off than many.

when I worked for a company who had three premises I had to travel between them - most days = tried the petrol etc ., investigation produced if it is the one company then no claim can be made, travel time included within your wage structure i.e. paid for.

 

Recommend find another job if you are not happy.

 

or go to the far east and study work patterns = can travel 3-4 hours to get to work under own paid method work 12 hours then same journey home unpaid. wake up

I'm not going to my normal place of work.

 

I'm being sent to an entirely different place that is a lot further away. This is not a "normal" journey.

 

For me if you send me on training you have to pay me my normal wage. I'm losing money because of this. I'm getting 4 hours instead of 7.5!

Then if you think that make a fuss about it and see if you what you get. We thought you wanted advice, which was given. No one is forcing you to accept it

I used to have to go to Scotland, Cornwall and even Ireland and France from London as part of my work. I got paid a subsistance for being away overnight and also my travel costs at the government rates but I didnt get paid for the time to travel nor did I get paid for the many hours spent in a cheap hotel doing the preparation study for the next day's work. It was all necessary so you accept it but then again I worked with some marvellous people so it wasnt a chore to be away but a pleasure. Longer courses can be rewarding because of the other people attending them, you can learn a lot by socialising-may even get you contacts for a better job.

If you pull the shutters down it may stop people getting in but it also stops you getting out.

No, you are not losing money. You are being paid for the hours that you work, just like normal.

 

 

For me if you send me on training you have to pay me my normal wage.

 

The problem with that sentence is the "for me". You see, it isn't "for you". You aren't the employer. And if you continue to complain about it then you may not be the employee either.

 

If you really do not wish to go, I should imagine they'll accept your resignation. Better to get it over with than prolong this for the next time you have training.

This is local authority (county council run) provision.

 

Seems wrong that if i get to work in a few minutes why should i travel 2.5 hours "for free" bar the petrol?

 

The training is mandatory

.

 

It is the downside to being an employee and needing work. My place of work may be a few minutes from home, or it may be 4 hours from home - I get paid the same regardless but do not consider myself out of pocket as my employer covers the cost of the mileage. If you had other employment that the increased travel time for the training prevented you from completing then you might consider that you were out of pocket

 

You can try using the WT Regs and recent case law to try and make a case that travel time to a different place of work should be classed as 'working time' and paid accordingly, but I cannot see this leading to anything other than being labelled a troublemaker and finding yourself out of work

Any advice given is done so on the assumption that recipients will also take professional advice where appropriate.
