If my employer scheduled a meeting but didn't show up, can I be compensated for my time?
Question Details: No show on mandatory meeting.
If you are hourly, they must pay for your time: meeting time, even cancelled meeting time, is work time. Hourly employees must be paid for ALL hours worked.
If you are salaried, they don't have to give you any pay: your weekly salary is your total compensation for all time and all work that week.
There is no law requring them to reimburse or compensate you for mileage: unless you have a contract requring reimbursement, it purely voluntary on their part whether to do this or not.
