Is a call center required to pay overtime for booting a computer?

A call center is required to pay overtime wages to an employee for time spent booting up a computer before the “official” shift start time.  Many call centers require employees to arrive early to the workplace to boot up their computers in advance of their shift.  This extra time must be added to the total work day and add up over the course of a week.  If this additional time extends beyond the 40 hour work week then overtime pay is required under federal law.
