Earning pay while sleeping? Sure!

The California Supreme Court held yesterday that construction site security guards who reside in on-site trailers must be compensated for all time spent "on-call," even including time spent sleeping!

This is radically different from the federal rules, which provide an exclusion for sleep time. #on-calltime

The U.S. Supreme Court held today that employees do not have to be paid for time they spend going through anti-theft security screenings (such as bag checks) by their employers. According to the court, these screenings, which are conducted after work, are not a part of the the principal activities which the employees are hired to perform.  Nor are they an intrinsic element of those activities. Therefore, they are noncompensable postliminary activities under the Portal-to-Portal Act.
