The Supreme Court Voted to Stiff the American Worker, Again

It's always 5-4, and it's never in workers' favor.


One of the most consistent things about the current Supreme Court is the solid 5-4 majority for going the wrong way on issues of labor and management. There was another one of those Monday, a 5-4 decision in the case of Encino Motorcars, Inc. v. Navarro.

At issue was the right of “service advisors” at an auto sales company, whose job it is to identify problems with a customer’s car and then sell that customer the solution. They were regularly worked over 40 hours a week and they went to court to try and get overtime pay under the Fair Labor Standards Act.

(The FLSA specifically exempts “engaging in servicing automobiles” from the overtime pay regulations.)

In reversing a lower court decision in favor of Encino, the Ninth Circuit argued that, since the “service advisors” did not themselves do the work of servicing the automobiles, they were not included in the FLSA exemption and, thus, were entitled to overtime pay. Encino appealed to the Supreme Court and, two years ago, the Court sent the case back to the Ninth, which held for Navarro again. That was the decision that was reversed on Monday by the Nine Wise Souls in D.C.
