Car Dealership Service Advisors Exempt From Federal Overtime Requirements

The United States Supreme Court ruled for the second time in as many years that service advisors are exempt from the FLSA’s overtime-compensation requirements.
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), 52Stat. 1060, as amended, 29 U. S. C. §201 et seq., requires employers to pay overtime compensation to covered employees. The FLSA exempts from the overtime-pay requirement “any salesman, partsman, or mechanic primarily engaged in selling or servicing automobiles” at a covered dealership. §213(b)(10)(A). We granted certiorari to decide whether this exemption applies to service advisors—employees at car dealerships who consult with customers about their servicing needs and sell them servicing solutions. We conclude that service advisors are exempt.
