Calif. Police Union Settles 'Donning and Doffing' Lawsuit

December 22, 2010  | 

The Long Beach (Calif.) Police Department's officer union has settled its "donning and doffing" lawsuit filed against the city, reports the Long Beach Press-Telegram.

The officers filed the suit in December 2006, to seek reimbursement for allegedly unpaid time they spent putting on their uniforms and protective equipment, attending classes, waiting in court, attending briefings and many other routine tasks.

Under terms of the settlement, the department's 883 officers will get 12 hours of extra vacation time per year for three years, and then 11 hours in the final year.
