Wage and hour lawsuits - taking a depo from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. with no breaks, and all they keep talking about is did you get your 15-minute rest break after five hours, did you get your 30-minute lunch break.  The thought wanders through my mind, when do I get my rest break.  Am I getting paid time and half here?

ADA discrimination lawsuits - having to lug all your equipment up two flights of stairs bec. there is no elevators.

You bring up a very good point, that a deposition is a workplace, subject to all the federal rules:  breaks, lunch period (oh, my gosh!), and an environment free from sexual harassment.

Kyung, in New York City reporters are loathe to ask for waiting time.  It is crazy, what professional works without being paid?  Kind of like indentured servitude!

Oh, I do.  But I just find it funny.

I'm with you, Kyung!!  Surprised you didn't say something.  I sure would have.  After an hour and 45 minutes I start speaking up.  "Not the Duracell bunny here!!"
