My employer requires that I have my personal tools (tool bags,saw,hammer,etc.) on site before I clock in,and remove them after I clock out. Is this right?

Under the U.S. Department of Labor rules on Use of Time Clocks, the time an employee actually works must be counted. The time spent on transporting the tools would be considered de minimis or insignificant because it was limited, and may be disregarded.

In practice, your employer may feel that placing your tools on the site is not actual time worked, and insignificant.
