K-9 Dog Handler Can Advance FLSA Claim For Time Caring For Dog Off-Duty
A former canine handler can advance his claim for unpaid compensation and overtime pay for hours he spent caring for a dog outside of work according to the Northern District of Alabama which so ruled.(Manning v. Scottsboro, N.D. Ala., No. 5:12-cv-04108, 1/30/13).
This appears to be an interesting case to watch.
