Philadelphia Wage and Hour Lawyers

Donning and Doffing

Donning and doffing claims refer to compensation owed to employees that spend time each day putting on and taking off protective gear that is necessary for them to perform their job responsibilities.  Sidney L. Gold & Associates believe that employees are entitled to be paid for this time, but many employers require their employees to don and doff outside of their paid time.  These employers expect their employees to be suited up and ready to go at their appointed time, yet employees are often not compensated for the time it takes to prepare or disassemble themselves.

Our Philadelphia wage and hour lawyers have represented a multitude of donning and doffing claims and have recovered millions of dollars owed to employees through class action litigation.  When a large group of employees file suit together as a group, the time spent donning and doffing quickly adds up and the benefits to the group can be significant.
