High Court Grapples With Auto Service Advisers' OT Eligibility

4.20.16

The Law360 article, “High Court Grapples With Auto Service Advisers' OT Eligibility,” provides an analysis of the Encino Motorcars LLC v. Hector Navarro et al. case.

On Wednesday, the U.S. Supreme Court heard argument on whether Encino Motorcars LLC service advisers should be entitled to overtime pay. The justices asked tough questions to both sides appearing at times to disagree with the proper way to categorize the workers under the Fair Labor Standards Act.

The Ninth Circuit had concluded that the service advisers should not be exempted from FLSA overtime provisions because language in a U.S. Department of Labor interpretive regulation only excludes salespeople and mechanics from overtime compensation.

Encino Motorcars is represented by partners Karl Lindegren and Todd Scherwin and associate Colin Calvert.
