Supreme Court Rules For Car Dealerships In Overtime Case


WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court says that car dealerships aren't required under federal law to pay overtime to their service advisers, the employees that greet customers and assess their service and repair needs.

The high court announced its decision Monday. The case is important to the more than 18,000 dealerships in the United States. Together, the dealerships employ more than 100,000 service advisers.
