Supreme Court Hears Case on Overtime for Highly Compensated Employees
October 13, 2022
Erika Todd was quoted in the article, "Supreme Court Hears Case on Overtime for Highly Compensated Employees," published by SHRM on October 13, 2022.
The article reviews an ongoing U.S. Supreme Court case, Helix Energy Solutions Group v. Hewitt, that could impact how employers determine which employees are exempt from overtime pay. In the case, it is questioned whether a supervisor making over $200,000 each year is entitled to overtime pay under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
"This case is especially likely to affect the oil and gas industries, the health care field, and other sectors where well-compensated employees are paid per day or shift," said Erika.
