Firm Secures Victory Against Claim for Unpaid Overtime Wages

Firm Secures Victory Against Claim for Unpaid Overtime Wages

May 24, 2022
The firm Primmer, Piper, Eggleston & Cramer is pleased to announce that it secured a significant victory before the Vermont Supreme Court for one of its bank clients against a former employee claiming unpaid overtime wages. In a lengthy and robust decision, the Supreme Court noted that the question presented on appeal “appears to be a matter of national first impression.” In closely examining the overtime requirements set forth in the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act, followed by the State of Vermont, the Supreme Court agreed with the lower court’s conclusion that the bank’s method for calculating commissions that included deductions for wages already paid complied with the law so long as it met the minimum wage and overtime thresholds.
