INTEL CLEANROOM EMPLOYEES: DO YOU CHANGE OUT OF YOUR CLEANROOM BUNNY SUIT DURING LUNCH?
Intel Employees who work in Intel Cleanrooms and change out of their Cleanroom Bunny Suits during their 30 minute Lunch Breaks may have had their wage rights violated. Meal Break laws require an uninterrupted 30 minute meal break, free of any sort of work, for hourly employees.
Donning and Doffing (changing into and out of) Cleanroom "Bunny Suits" is considered "work" by the United States Supreme Court. And so, employees who change into or out of Bunny Suits DURING meal breaks are in fact working during a portion of their thirty minute meal break. The penalty per violation is 1 hour of pay. THAT'S ONE HOUR OF PAY PER DAY THE LAW ALLOWS YOU TO RECOVER IF VIOLATIONS ARE FOUND.

There are NO ATTORNEYS FEES unless you recover.
There are no attorney’s fees unless you recover, in which case those charges are paid from your share of the recovery. If there is no recovery, you will not be responsible for any attorney’s fees, court costs or litigation expenses.
It is ILLEGAL for employers to fire employees for making wage claims.
Under federal law the employer can be punished with criminal penalties. The Fair Labor Standards Act prohibits employers from retaliating against any current or former employee who elects to participate in any proceeding asserting their rights provided under the law.
You DO NOT need to prove the hours you worked.
You do not need to have proof of the hours you worked. If the employer does not keep accurate time records, most courts allow the employee to make a good faith estimate of hours worked. So even if you did not keep your pay records, or did not always clock in or out, we will pursue your claim.
