Brunozzi v. Cable Communications, Inc., 15-35623

In consolidated actions brought by cable and internet service technicians, alleging that a company's compensation plan violates the overtime provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), 29 U.S.C. section 207, Oregon's statutory requirement that an employer pay all wages earned and unpaid after terminating an employee, ORS 652.140, and Oregon's laws prohibiting discrimination against a private employee who engages in whistleblowing, ORS 659A.199, and wage-claim discussions, ORS 652.355, the district court's grant of summary judgment in favor of defendants is reversed where: 1) defendant's pay plan violates the FLSA's overtime provisions; and 2) plaintiffs' state law claims also survive summary judgment.
