The McCarran Ferguson Act allows employers to not include certain time and activities of employees, prior to and/or after work, as "work time." These activities are ones that are not required in order to accomplish the job. The most common of these is the time taken to commute to work. Examples of types of activities other than commuting that are non-compensable are: waiting to check in at the beginning of a workday or waiting in line for a paycheck at the conclusion of a shift.
