Amazon warehouse workers sue to be paid for time spent in screening checks

Sep 20 2013

In their proposed class-action suits, workers say they spent at least 40 minutes a week and often more being screened for stolen goods or contraband -- time for which they were not compensated. These are not random checks but screenings the workers have to go before leaving for each break and at the end of their shift.
