Litz v. Saint Consulting Group, Inc., No. 13-2437 (1st Cir. 2014)Annotate this Case
Appellants, Crystal Litz and Amanda Payne, earned more than $100,000 per year as project managers for The Saint Consulting Group, Inc. Appellants claimed unpaid overtime compensation under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The district court granted summary judgment on the FLSA claim to Saint Consulting, concluding that Appellants were “highly compensated employees” and thus exempt from the overtime pay protections of the FLSA. The First Circuit affirmed, holding that Appellants were highly compensated employees exempt from the overtime protections of the FLSA, and therefore, the district court did not err in granting summary judgment for Saint Consulting.
The court issued a subsequent related opinion or order on November 7, 2014.
