When must employers pay for commuting time?
Abstract: That was the question before the Second Circuit when fire-alarm inspectors alleged they were entitled to portal-to-portal pay under the Fair Labor Standards Act because the briefcases of documents they were required to carry to and from work increased their commuting time. This article explains why the court didn’t buy their argument. Singh v. The City of New York, 524 F.3d 361 (2d Cir. 2008)
