Jessie Busk and Laurie Castro worked for Integrity Staffing Solutions at a warehouse in Nevada, where they pulled products from the shelves and packed them for delivery to Amazon customers. Each day, Integrity required them and other employees to go through a security screening before they left the warehouse, purportedly to prevent theft. Due to long lines, employees had to wait for up to 25 minutes each day before they could be searched and then had to remove their keys, wallets, and belts and pass through metal detectors. Though searches were mandatory, the company refused to pay workers for the time spent waiting for and undergoing them.
