Verdict Supports Aerospace Manufacturer’s Exempt Classification of Engineer

Our client, an aerospace manufacturing company, was sued for overtime compensation and related penalties for the alleged misclassification of a project engineer.  The plaintiff argued his job duties did not satisfy any of the exemption tests under California law – that he did not supervise anyone, did not exercise independent judgment and discretion, and spent most of his time performing non-exempt duties.  At trial, CDF argued that the plaintiff was exempt under both the professional and administrative exemptions and the court entered a complete defense verdict in favor of our client.
