You work from home, but your employer does not pay you for all the time you spend working from home
You work remotely from other locations, but don’t get paid for all of your work hours.
Many companies allow employees to work remotely in locations other than a traditional office environment, including their homes. Non-exempt employees who work from home have the same pay rights as employees who work at the office. In other words, it is the employee’s right to get paid for all of their work hours, regardless of where the work occurs.
It is the employer’s responsibility to track and pay for your hours, whether you work at the company location or at home. Employers who allow employees to work from home, but don’t pay them for all of the work time are violating the FLSA.
