Staffing Industry Analysts North American Daily News

A federal court for the Northern District of California recently ruled in a pending class action case that temporary workers should be paid for time spent interviewing for potential assignments with client companies, employment law firm Littler Mendelson reported.

The court found that employees were "subject to the control" of the staffing firm and that the staffing firm "suffered or permitted" the employees to work in connection with the interviews.

However, the court also ruled that time spent preparing for the interviews and commuting to the interviews was not compensable.

More information will appear in the upcoming "Legs & Reg Advisor" due out later this month. The "Legs & Reg Advisor" is produced by Staffing Industry Analysts and Littler Mendelson.

The case is Sullivan vs. Kelly Services Inc.
