Preliminary/Postliminary Time in the Wake of Busk v. Integrity: What Employers Need to Know

The U.S. Supreme Court issued a landmark 9-0 decision in December holding that employees’ time spent waiting for and undergoing security screening after their shifts have ended is not compensable under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Although this decision should effectively curb the onslaught of similar claims under the FLSA, some state law issues could remain, and the Court’s ruling is likely to have a broad effect on litigation involving other types of preliminary and postliminary activities.
