Supreme Court Rejects Claim for Exemption from Overtime Pay
Employers and employees are often at odds over the issue of overtime pay. Naturally, employers are inclined to argue that an employee isn't entitled to overtime pay when it would boost the overall compensation that must be paid to the employee. The employer's position may be bolstered by applicable regulations from the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). On the flip side, certain employees—even those who are paid relatively high salaries—may claim that they're entitled to overtime pay under DOL rules and regulations.
