A dealership recently received a demand letter from an attorney for a former technician. In the letter, the attorney threatened to sue the dealership because it had failed to pay the technician extra money to conduct "courtesy inspections." Even though the technician had earned well in excess of the minimum wage and was exempt from overtime, the attorney insisted that the dealership was legally obligated to pay the technician for the extra work performed.
