I am an hourly-paid careworker working in the community. Am I entitled to be paid for my travel time journeying to and from my last appointment of the day?
Yes. Your average basic hourly pay must be at least the National Minimum Wage and this includes your time spent travelling between visits to the homes of different service users unless, perhaps, there is enough time to get home between each visit. It is up to your employer to organise your shifts in a sensible way to take account of the travel time.
Securing members their proper pay for their travel time between shifts is a key campaigning issue for many trade unions, so speak to your union to see what can be done.
