Federal Court Will Decide on Wage & OT

LEGAL NEWS: Chauffeurs have filed a federal class action lawsuit in Las Vegas against their employer, Whittlesea -- Bell Transportation, the fifth largest chauffeured transportation company. The lawsuit seeks back wages for Bell Trans chauffeurs and cites a Labor Department opinion and multiple court cases. The argument is that chauffeurs are entitled to minimum wage and overtime. This is happening two years after voters approved a state constitution amendment to raise wages, and adds to complications of Nevada's minimum wage law. This is a legal battle being fought state by state; a federal court ruling will overshadow state jurisdiction. This is an important case to follow.  -- J.L.
