Supreme Court to Hear Cases on Compensable Time, Inspectors' Liability

The Supreme Court this fall will hear two cases whose outcomes could have far-reaching implications in the environmental health and safety world.

In one case, United States vs. Olson et al., the court will determine if federal safety inspectors are liable for injuries suffered by workers if the inspectors fail to follow agency policies and procedures.

The other EHS case before the Supreme Court this fall will ask the court to decide whether workers should be paid for time spent waiting at and walking to and from safety gear distribution stations.
