Case Description: 

Whether the court of appeals was correct in holding that workplace activities required by an employer and performed for the employer's benefit constitute "work" under the Fair Labor Standards Act even if the activities do not require a significant level of exertion.

Brian Wolfman and Greg Beck of Public Citizen were co-counsel for the respondent at the cert stage, and the Supreme Court denied cert.
