The responsibilities of a cable installer typically include working in homes and businesses to install and repair telecommunications cables like phone lines, internet cables or cable television. In addition, cable installers test lines when there is problems reported by the customer, and modify, adjust or replace equipment that is failing.
Under the FLSA, an employer may pay its cable installer technicians by a “piece rate” compensation system, however the employer must still track all hours worked by its workers and pay overtime in addition to the piece rates when the cable installers work more than 40 hours in a work week.
In general, “hours worked” includes all time an employee must be on duty, or on the employer’s premises or at any other prescribed place of work, from the beginning of the first principal activity of the work day to the end of the last principal work activity of the workday. In addition, this can include travel time between jobs, time spent at the shop, time spent waiting between jobs, and work performed at home.
