Deherrera v. Decker Truck Line, Inc. -F.3d-, 2016 WL 1593691 (10th Cir. Apr. 21,2016)

Apr 21, 2016

The plaintiffs in the wage dispute underlying this appeal are commercial truck drivers who claimed that their employer failed to pay them overtime wages under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and the Colorado Minimum Wage Order (Wage Order). The court held that drivers who transported materials on an intra-state route that was the final leg of an interstate journey were moving goods in interstate commerce, subject to the power of the Secretary of Transportation, and thus were exempt from the FLSA’s overtime provisions.
