Driving company vehicle and getting paid for it?

My husband was issued a company vehicle that he keeps at home he does not start getting paid until he gets to the shop or job. Then his paid time ends when he leaves the job not when he gets home, sometimes it maybe two hours. Please give me legal info to support your answer I have been looking on the internet and have not been able to find anything exact. Thank you!
