To whom it may concern at Just Answer:

I am currently working for an agency at a flat rate of £8.75 per hour. I am paid for the hours I work on site, however I am also a driver, and I am NOT paid for the hours I spend picking up, dropping off and generally transporting workers to and from locations. The average time I spend driving workers to and from work site locations on average is around 15-18 hours per week.

My question is simply, is either my employer responsible for this shortfall or can I claim it back from the HMRC?

Are you below the minimum wage considering all the hours you do?
