Amazon Warehouse Worker Case Accepted by Supreme Court

The U.S. Supreme Court will use a case involving workers at Amazon.com Inc. warehouses to consider whether companies must pay employees for time spent undergoing security searches.

The justices today agreed to review a federal appeals court decision that allowed a lawsuit over security lines designed to prevent employee theft at Amazon warehouses in Nevada. The suit was filed by former employees of Integrity Staffing Solutions Inc., which provides temporary workers for Amazon.
