EEOC, thereby affirming the EEOC’s ability to exempt from the age discrimination statutes the coordination of retiree health benefits with Medicare. This ruling clears the way for employers to design retiree health benefit plans that feature coordination of these benefits.

<a >Resident Managers Not Entitled to On-Call Time, California Appellate Court Rules.</A>
In a case for alleged unpaid wages, the California Court of Appeal has held that on-call resident managers of an elderly housing complex are entitled to compensation only for time spent actually performing assigned duties and not for all time spent on call. Isner v. Falkenberg/Gilliam Associates, B195860 (Cal. Ct. App. Mar. 18, 2008). Although the plaintiffs were required to remain on the premises while on call, they were otherwise free to use on-call time as they chose. Following their retirement, the plaintiffs filed a class action on behalf of resident managers to recover wages for all time spent on call. The employer moved for summary judgment, which the trial court granted. The appellate court affirmed.
