Supreme Court Rules than Drug Co.Non-sales Reps are Sales Reps for Overtime

Filed under: Employment Law — Chuck @ 5:59 pm

Not unexpectedly the US Supreme Court just ruled that outside drug company representatives are exempt outside sales representatives for the purpose of overtime pay under the FLSA. In Christopher v. Smithkline Beecham Corp., the Court ruled that even though drug representatives who visit doctors cannot make sales, and that all legitimate sales of a prescription drug happen through a pharmacy, the reps are outside salesmen and therefore exempt from the overtime provisions of the FLSA. Go Figure!?
