Washington and federal law require employers to pay workers for all hours that employers “suffer and permit” them to work. Unpaid “pre-work” such as truck warming, loading or transferring of equipment, or worksite preparation are examples of off-the-clock work. Similarly, unpaid work post-shift, like finishing, cleaning, and returning equipment is off-the-clock.
SGB’s wage and hour class action attorneys are committed to ending wage abuse, and ensuring that employers pay employees everything they are owed.
