The Portal-to-Portal Act of 1947 attempts, by new and retroactive definitions of what constitutes working time of an employee under the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938, to deprive employees of claims under that earlier act, to which the Supreme Court of the United States has held they were entitled. This article will discuss whether this can be done under the due process clause of the Fifth Amendment.
