Case Conclusion Date: 12.06.2012
Practice Area: Employment and labor
Outcome: Summary judgment in favor of our clients
Description: We represented two individuals who had worked as quality control inspectors on a large construction project. Their employer had classified them as exempt, and they had not receive overtime pay for all of their hours over 40. The court ultimately held, on summary judgment, that our clients had been non-exempt and were entitled to overtime. Also, we persuaded the court that the "fluctuating workweek method" should not be applied retroactively to calculate overtime damages in a misclassification case, which effectively tripled our clients recovery.
