The question Traveling time count as working was closed for being a legal question. However, I believe this falls under the types of legal questions that most HR professionals should be able to answer. From the Meta discussion:
Legal advice is asking a question that needs an answer by a lawyer, not a HR manager or career guidance counselor.
If the "legal" question is something that our site's target audience should be expected to know the answer to, then the question is OK for the site.
For example, I would consider the following "legal" questions OK for the site because they are things that HR managers should know the answer to.
- Is it legal to discriminate against smokers in one's company in Canada or USA?
- What is an equal opportunity employer?
- What are the rules regarding electronic distribution of income data forms for tax reporting in the United States?
This question is about the interpretation of FLSA rules, which any HR professional should know. I believe that this question should be reopened.
