Appeals court: Tyson Foods workers should be paid for putting on gear

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A state appeals court ruled Thursday in favor of six employees who said they should be paid for the time they put their protective clothing and other gear on and off.

The six went to court after the Tyson Foods plant in Jefferson refused to pay for that time.

The company said the time spent putting protective gear on and off was not indispensable to the employees’ work activities.

The Fourth District Court of Appeals in Madison disagreed Thursday morning, and said the workers should be paid for that time.

The Tyson Jefferson plant mainly produces pepperoni for pizza.
