Each day TD Bank required two employees to arrive early at each branch and perform a variety of mostly security-related tasks both inside and outside the branch's building. These tasks took 15-20 minutes every day. Only when these tasks were completed were the employees able to boot up the bank's computer system, log in and clock in. So each week these employees did a hour and fifteen to an hour and forty minutes work without being paid. The case has been settled for $6 million; it is styled Keller v. TD Bank NA et al, Case No. 2:12-cv-05054, in the US District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.
Employees must be paid for the time they work; it violates both the federal Fair Labor Standards Act and Kentucky's wage and hour law when an employee is compelled to work off the clock.
