Employees sue Columbia Farms for donning/doffing pay

Former workers at the South Carolina plant are upset for not receiving overime.

Ten former employees of the Columbia Farms plant in Greenville, S.C. have filed a lawsuit against the company for refusing to pay overtime, according to a report.

The workers accused Columbia Farms of not paying them for donning and doffing time, which added 60-75 minutes to their shifts.

The chicken processing plant, a House of Raeford, North Carolina, subsidiary, said it did not believe workers needed to be paid for donning and doffing.
