The US Supreme Court today clearly beneath an appeal from Amazon that would’ve adequate the aggregation from facing a Nevada state court over a labor suit SCOTUS itself ruled on more than five years ago.

A group of barn workers filed suit in 2010 alleging the aggregation forced them to endure unfair labor practices by abnegation to pay them for the time they spent cat-and-mouse in line to be searched by aegis at the end of their shifts.

It won’t.

This means the aboriginal case will likely move advanced in Nevada and, potentially, could become a class-action accusation involving Amazon workers in other states as well.
