COURT RULES AMAZON NEEDN’T PAY WORKERS FOR ALL THEIR TIME AT WORK

And here we have a very unsurprising ruling from the United States Supreme Court. Amazon.com does not have to pay its employees for the time they spend waiting to be searched for stolen items when they leave work. The unanimous ruling claims that workers are not performing “integral and indispensable” duties while they are waiting to be searched, and are therefore not entitled to be paid during that time, which can be up to a half hour per day.
