Federal Appeals Court Rules in Favor of Tyson Foods in a Lawsuit Filed by Nebraska Workers

Tyson Foods doesn't have to pay workers at two of its Nebraska plants for the time they spend putting on and taking off safety gear and preparing for work, a federal appeals court ruled on August 26, 2015. The 8th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals said lawsuits filed by workers at its plants in Dakota City and Madison failed to show that Tyson had agreed to pay them for that time. The decision eliminates two lower-court decisions that ordered Tyson to pay more than $20 million to the workers and their lawyers. The Nebraska workers filed the lawsuits in 2008, saying they should be paid for the roughly 30 minutes it takes to do pre- and post-production chores, such as putting on uniforms and safety gear, sanitizing equipment, sharpening knives and other duties. At that time, Tyson paid workers for their time on the assembly line plus four minutes for all such chores, but that's since been increased to up to 20 minutes a day. The federal court also found technical problems with the workers' claims, saying the lawsuit was flawed because it was filed under state law instead of federal labor laws and the plaintiffs failed to file formal statements agreeing to be part of a class-action lawsuit. The 8th Circuit had upheld a ruling ordering Tyson to pay $5.8 million to workers who filed a class-action lawsuit. But the Springdale, Arkansas-based company is challenging whether workers should have been allowed to use statistics to determine damages for an entire class-action lawsuit based on the average amount of time that a sample of workers spent putting on and taking off their safety gear. Similar lawsuits have been filed against other meatpacking companies in Nebraska with mixed results.
