Insurance employee loses overtime appeal

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrint

An insurance company employee lost an appeal for overtime compensation when the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday affirmed a District Court grant of summary judgment in favor of the employer.

Thomas Blanchar was director of institutional sales and product manager for a line of retirement investment products offered by Standard Insurance Company. He sued claiming he was entitled to overtime under the Fair Labor Standards Act.

In Thomas Blanchar v. Standard Insurance Co., 12-2745, the 7th Circuit affirmed a ruling of the District Court for the Southern District of Indiana granting summary judgment in favor of Standard.

“Under the applicable regulations as well as case law, Blanchar’s work for The Standard satisfies the requirements of the administrative employee exemption, so he is not entitled to overtime compensation under the FLSA,” Circuit Judge William J. Bauer wrote for the panel.
