Paying for Extra Work

Q: A person pays a driver a monthly salary for a fixed pick-and-drop route. One day, he requests the driver to take a detour and make an additional stop (without discussing extra payment). The driver agrees and does so, and does not ask for extra money. Does the employer owe the driver money for the extra work?

A: Rightfully, the employer should pay him for the extra work.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
