Please Wait While I Check Your Bag: California Court Certifies Nike Bag-Check Class Action & Converse Workers Seek Class Certification in Similar Case
Long lines and waiting for security inspections are the new normal not only at airports and stadiums, but also at office buildings and theatres—just to name a few places. According to the plaintiff in Rodriquez v. Nike Retail Services, Inc., N.D. Cal. Case No. 5:14-cv-01508, he and other Nike retail employees also had to wait for security inspections when they left for breaks or after their shifts at Nike’s retail stores. The plaintiff claims that he and other employees were required to wait for such inspections after clocking out, and he and a class of Nike retail employees should have been, but were not, paid for the time spent waiting.
