Compensable off site work and travel
We have a non-exempt employee whose job is to arrange outside activities and bus tours for our retirement facility residents. She sometimes accompanies our elderly residents on overnite trips to resorts, casinos, etc. as a sort of chaperon. During these trips, the company pays for her travel, lodging and meals. While away, the employee sets her own scedule and is free to participate in whatever entertainment is offered, but is expected to be available to trouble-shoot any problems that arise with the residents during the trip. How much of this time would be compensable?
