In this episode, Curt and Bill Maccarone continue their discussion about overtime issues in the fire service with an overview of “regular rate”. Regular rate refers to the amount of hourly compensation that must be multiplied by 1.5 to determine the overtime rate. While that may seem simple, its application is anything but.
Regular rate cases continue to be at the forefront of FLSA lawsuits in the fire service.
