In the company I work for, as I work on different projects, I have to put in my hours on a monthly basis (projects have different pay codes). Normally, I travel within work hours and anything I do is generally between 7am and 8pm.
However! This week I've got to get to London (from Birmingham) by 9am, do a full day's work, then attend a team meeting and go for a meal which won't finish until around 9.30pm, then get the train home meaning I won't be "home from work" until around 11.30pm. This is an extra ~5 hours per day which over a few weeks will massively mount up.
Should I claim for these extra hours? Is it classed as working time? I get paid for travelling if it's within my normal working hours, so is it different?
Any advice would be great!

It will be best to contact HR directly who should be able to give you a simple answer.

Every company operates a different work policy and contract, have a read of your contract if you have it with you, it should state clearly in there.

unless your meals is "word related" I wouldnt count the time spent in the resturant. Just minus it from your days total

The meal is work related - it's a "team get together"

I would hope your company has a subsistence policy and/or an expenses policy...so you should be able to claim back anything you pay out for being able to 'live' whilst you're on extended hours. You'll probably find that your contract states that you have 'normal hours' but that you're expected to be flexible. If it doesn't say that, I'd say chance your arm and ask about being paid overtime!

Tell them you really cant do the meal part of the day, as really it's pointless, and you need to get home.

No can do, I have to go! :(

if unsure of policy then claim for them....the worst they can do is refuse and they will have to give you an explanation

I'd love to be paid over-time by going to a 'team get together' meal.

Sounds like a dream job :p

rubbish, the team meeting before the meal should cover all you need. You wont get alot of work done while stuffing your face.

Asked them about putting you in a b&b while you working on this job?

Also you said you normally do 7-8 and now you will be doing 7-11.30, not 5 hours from what I can see.

Yeah claim for the time at the meal, i'm sure everybody claims they are WORKING on their works nights out. :roll:

Chances are you will get your expenses paid, not the extra hours travel. Although some places allow you to claim the hours you travelled to the job, not home.

You misunderstood, I normally work any time between 7am and 8pm - not for the whole time.
I've only just got back home as I got the last train which took an almighty 3 hours so I'll definitely be claiming for a portion of it!! !
To the last poster - get a life! I was after genuine advice from people that either know about payroll/expenses or HAVE a job so your input isn't required.
