In recent news, Jesse Busk, a former warehouse employee of Amazon filed a class action lawsuit against Amazon.com and Integrity Staffing, a company that assigns employees at the Amazon.com warehouse. Mr. Busk who usually worked 12 hour shifts, earned $12.35 an hour working nights, $11.60 days, without health care or paid leave.
Mr. Busk recently filed an unpaid overtime lawsuit claiming he was not being paid for all the time they actually spent working. At the end of each shift, Mr. Busk, along with all other Amazon.com warehouse employees were required to go through a security check. Often times, the lines were long and the wait time to actually proceed through security would take up to 30 minutes. During this time, Mr. Busk, along with other colleagues were already clocked out, and the time spent waiting in line was out of their own personal time.
The security checkpoint was required by Amazon as a prevention method for loss of items in warehouse due to theft or stealing. According to Mr. Busk, the checkpoint itself was not offensive; however it was the long wait in line through the checkpoint that seemed unfair.
The Amazon.com unpaid overtime benefit lawsuit filed by Mr. Busk alleges that as an employee of Integrity Staffing and Amazon he was not paid for required time waiting at the security check point at the end of the day. In addition to not being paid any wages, the overtime pay lawsuit alleges that Mr. Busk should have been receiving mandatory overtime pay.
