Travel time cannot be included in working hours?

We are working in a contracting company and our accommodation is far from the work site. We have to leave the camp early in the morning to reach the site and we get back late in the night. The company has agreed to pay for the overtime. But, we are spending almost 14 hours, including travel time. Can we include the travel time in calculating working hours? As per law, is it allowed to work so long hours? What is the provision in law?

Overtime and leave salary calculation?

I was working with a designing company in Doha. When I got a new offer, I quit the job and am processing my transfer through the ministry. During my service period, the company had not paid the overtime wages due to financial diffi culties and it was agreed to pay along with end-of-service benefi ts. The accounts department has forwarded details of the calculated overtime and leave salary. But I found that they have miscalculated the overtime. I have informed the department attaching my records. The accounts department replied that there is no miscalculation and it is calculated as per the company policy. Please explain how the overtime and leave salary is calculated as per law?
