As far as I am concerned you also shouldn't be compensated for the time you spend filling out unemployment applications after they fire your ass.
The city of Oakland is expected to pay $1.75 million in legal fees and will offer vacation time and money to police officers who claimed in a lawsuit that they had been underpaid for working extra hours and for the time they spent putting on their uniforms, attorneys said Thursday.
Under a tentative agreement reached this week, the city will cover the plaintiffs' legal fees and costs. More than 500 current officers will receive an average of 130 vacation hours each, and about 60 retired officers each will be paid $3,500, said Rocky Lucia, an attorney for the officers.
The agreement draws to a close a three-year legal fight that began with a 2006 federal lawsuit filed by Officer Bob Valladon, former president of the Oakland Police Officers Association, over the issue of "donning and doffing," in which officers said they weren't being paid for the time they spent putting on and taking off their uniforms.
