20 June 2016 News

Law360 featured comments from Partner Carrie B. Hoffman, co-chair of the Firm’s labor and employment practice, on the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision in Encino Motorcars v. Navarro. The court ruled that auto service advisers are eligible to receive overtime compensation. 

“The Supreme Court said the Ninth Circuit wrongfully gave weight to the DOL’s revised regulation on the exempt status of service advisers, which was a reversal of a prior proposed rulemaking by the DOL,” said Ms. Hoffman. “…The Supreme Court’s conflicting approach to when to give deference to the DOL’s interpretation of FLSA makes FLSA compliance even more difficult for employers.”
