Compensable Work Duties Charts: The Time for Which Employees Must Be Paid


Compensable Work Duties Charts

Updated on Jan 13, 2017

The Compensable Work Duties Charts contains a chart to help you determine what kinds of work you have to pay your employees for. It's especially important to know what kinds of time and work are considered compensable if you have employees who come and go from one site to another or if you have employees who must sometimes wait for work to come from other sources. You may not always have to pay employees for waiting for work to come to them or for time spent washing up, waiting in line for checks, etc. To get the most for your payroll dollar and to make sure you're not paying employees for time that is technically not compensable, consult this detailed chart.

The file contains a two-page document in rich text format (RTF) that is suitable for use with most word processing programs used in the Windows environment. 

Special Features:

Included are the following:

  • Handy lists to help you determine which kinds of time you need to pay employees for and which kinds of time can be excluded from pay.
  • Separate lists for duties and activities: one for activities that occur during work hours and one for activities that occur before, after, or in between work hours.

Toolkit is providing these tools free of charge. Some of these forms contain technical language and create significant legal obligations. Do not use any form without first having an attorney review the form and determine that it is suitable for the purpose for which you intend it.
