actually if you have to be some where at a certain time, you have to be paid from that point on in quite a few states. They only way to get around it is to have independent contractors and you can't set any of their hours. I just went through setting up my company and having to learn about all the ins and outs of contractors verse employes I can even begin to guess how it made it past the first jury. As long as they are requiring you to be some where that is the point they have to pay you. The road there they don't control so it is up to you how close or far away you work but once you are on their property you are either there or not. I can see why they want the billing system behind locked doors so no one screws with it.
