Troester v. Starbucks Corp., 234969

Answered a certified question regarding compensation of store employees for the several minutes that they spend closing the store after clocking out. Responding to a question certified by the Ninth Circuit, the California Supreme Court held that California wage-hour law has not incorporated the de minimis doctrine found in the Fair Labor Standards Act, but that the relevant state statutes and wage order do not allow employers to require employees to routinely work for minutes off-the-clock without compensation.
