Security Checks for Retail and 
Warehouse Employees

No Company is Too Big to Play Fair.

The law requires employers to pay employees for all time worked, which includes any activity that is part of the job or is necessary to perform part of the job. This means that employers may have to pay employees for tasks performed before they clock in and after they clock out.

Retail establishments and warehouses are notorious for subjecting workers to security inspections and bag checks after these workers clock out for the day. Time spent waiting in line and going through the security screening may be considered time worked.

If you were not paid for time spent in your employer’s security check process, you may be eligible to make a claim for unpaid overtime, if you worked hours over 40 in a workweek. Our wage and hour lawyers hold employers accountable for unpaid wages and are happy to discuss your potential claim with you.

If you have questions about this investigation or would like to discuss your potential claims, please contact us.
