French term or phrase: maintien de la rémunération
"Le temps de déplacement qui empiète sur l’horaire de travail donne lieu au maintien de la rémunération."

I need to be completely accurate about this and am hesitating between "paid in full" and "paid as normal". The reason for my hesitation is because of the possibility that the time in question might be due a higher rate than the basic rate of pay if the person concerned remained at their normal place of work.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Not "wage" as, in the UK wages are paid to manual, weekly paid workers. One does not refer to "wages" for employees on annual salaries paid monthly.

Asker: I did specify that I was looking for answers in UK English.

disagree  Daryo: that term doesn't apply to business trips, that are part of regular work, NOT any kind of absence for vacation, illness etc. // being paid salary while travelling in normal office hours is hardly a "reward" of the type rest, taking care of your health ...

  -> Incorrect! Did you read this:' for purposes of health, rest, recuperation or other reward'
