SUPREME COURT REJECTS REDS' APPEAL ON OVERTIME PAY
Published March 19, 1996
The U.S. Supreme Court rejected the Reds' argument that the team legally is not required to pay overtime to cleaning and maintenance employees. The team had claimed exemption from the federal Fair Labor Standards Act's time-and-a-half overtime requirement citing the fact that they are a seasonal amusement or entertainment operation. The workers noted that they also worked during the off-season, as the Reds operate Riverfront Stadium for the Bengals. The Reds employ 700 people during the MLB season, and 120 during the off-season (AP/WASHINGTON POST, 3/19).
