The United States Supreme Court rules on Anderson et al. v. Mt. Clemens Pottery Co. – also known as the “portal-to-portal” case – finding that preliminary work activities, where controlled by the employer and performed entirely for the employer’s benefit, are considered working time under the Fair Labor Standards Act.  In 1947, Congress enacted the Portal-to-Portal Act to amend the FLSA in light of the court’s ruling.
