Aguilar v. Mgmt. & Training Corp., 948 F.3d 1270 (10th Cir. Feb. 4, 2020)
The lawsuit underlying this appeal was filed by 122 detention officers who claimed that their employer violated the Fair Labor Standards Act and state law by failing to pay them for certain activities that they engaged in before they arrived at, when they arrived at, and after they left their posts within the prison. The Tenth Circuit held that the alleged pre- and post-shift activity is compensable work under the FLSA, and therefore reversed the district court’s order granting summary judgment to the prison.
