Denver police lawsuit over getting paid to get dressed can proceed




A lawsuit over whether Denver police are being properly compensated, including a dispute over whether they should be paid for the time it takes to dress for work, can move forward to trial, a federal judge has ruled.

U.S. District Judge Richard Matsch on Tuesday granted the city's request for summary judgment on two of the 10 claims sought by 856 police officers but ruled that the rest should go to a bench trial.

The judge also ruled that the time it takes officers to put on and take off their uniforms and equipment is compensable, but he gave the city the right to argue at trial that such activity is so insubstantial or insignificant that it should not merit pay.

WOW

Now I know I move slow in the mornings, but SHEESH.....

As a fairly experienced Police Officer, I call this BULL..

It takes me far longer to get into a suit for court, weddings etc, than it does to get into my day to day uniform..

It is lawsuits like this that cost the American Tax Payer so much money..

Ridiculous

Semper

I couldn't agree more. The longest it has ever taken me to get in uniform in 20 minutes for a dress uniform for my graduation...do they not have the common sense to lay their uniform out the night before?!?!?
