§11759. Travel Time for Minors Employed in the Entertainment Industry.

(a) Except as provided in subsection (b) of this section, all time spent in traveling from a studio to a location or from a location to a studio shall count as part of the working day of a minor.

(b) When a minor with a company on a location which is sufficiently distant to require an overnight stay is required to travel daily between living quarters and the place where the company is actually working, the time spent by the minor in such traveling will not count as work time, provided the company does not spend more than forty-five (45) minutes traveling each way and furnishes the necessary transportation. This is a general rule and subject to reasonable changes by the studio teacher. Factors such as working and transportation conditions, and ages of minors shall be considered by the studio teacher in making any such decision.
