Preparation Time

If employees must change uniforms, wash up or clean up at work, or engage in other preparatory activity that is required for the job, that time must generally be counted as hours worked. However, if the amount of time involved is too short to be counted as a practical matter, the time is not considered work time, even if changing is done on your premises.1
