Case Details

  • Case Status: Closed
  • Docket Number: Case No. 16-1449
  • Category:

We filed an amicus brief on July 6, 2017, supporting DirecTV’s certiorari petition to the U.S. Supreme Court. The District Court held that DirecTV did not qualify as a joint employer with regard to satellite technicians suing for overtime compensation under the Federal Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The District Court ruling was reversed by the Fourth Circuit. The appeals court held that the technicians offered a credible claim that they were jointly employed by DirecTV and the installation services provider and, thus, both entities could be held liable for overtime violations. DirecTV is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to take its appeal and our amicus offers the perspective of the franchisor/franchisee relationship in this FLSA joint-employer case

Resolution

On January 8, 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court denied the Certiorari Petition. Case close
