Should you be compensated for time spent donning and doffing protective gear?
“Donning” and “doffing” refers to the process of changing into and out of required protective clothing and gear for a job. An employer must compensate employees for time spent donning and doffing certain types of protective gear or safety equipment, but unfortunately, some dishonest employers treat this time as if the employee is off the clock.
