The Supreme Court made a decision in the case that pitted Amazon warehouse workers against a temp agency that employed them. It ruled that company, Integrity Staffing Solutions, shouldn't have to pay employees to wait for a security screening after their workday ends.
The case originates from a lawsuit by former warehouse worker Jesse Busk. In it, the agency's end-of-day security policy is described as a lengthy process in which employees wait to pass through metal detectors. (Video via KOLO)
"It was not unusual to last 25 minutes every day," Busk told Bloomberg.
