Teresa D. Teare and Paul D. Burgin successfully defended a residential program that provides services to disabled adults from a claim in Maryland federal court that employees should have been paid for all time set aside for sleeping (or engaging in personal activities) during their 7-day shifts. The court found that the employees were “waiting to be engaged” in their duties during that sleep period, which was not compensable, and not “engaged to wait,” which would have been compensable.
