Minimum Wage Compliance Measured by Workweek, Not by Hour, 9th Circuit Rules

XpertHR • December 04, 2017
Wages may be averaged out over a workweek, instead of calculated by the hour, to determine whether an employer has complied with minimum wage law, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled.

Ninth Circuit Concurs that Workweek, Not Individual Hour, is Relevant Timeframe for Determination of Minimum Wage Compliance

Ogletree Deakins • November 21, 2017
In an issue of first impression, the Ninth Circuit joined the Second, Fourth, Eighth and D.C. Circuits (and the position adopted by the Department of Labor) that, in determining whether an employer has complied with the minimum wage provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”), the proper inquiry is whether the total compensation for a given workweek divided by the total hours for that week meets or exceeds the minimum wage. Douglas v. Xerox Business Servs., LLC, 2017 U.S. App. LEXIS 22967 (9th Cir. Nov. 15, 2017). Employers should be aware that this case addresses only federal, and not state, wage and hour law in the Ninth Circuit.
