In an article published on July 7, 2015, Annette A. Idalski provides insight on the legal case between the U.S. Federal Government and Gate Guard Services, a South Texas oil field services company. The article details the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit decision, ruling that the government acted negligibly by stonewalling Gate Guard Services after incorrectly calculating that the business owed $6 million in overtime pay. Idalski emphasizes the importance of accurate investigations by the U.S. Department of Labor, stating that “this will serve as a wonderful precedent to defend employers and hopefully make the Department of Labor more responsible in their investigations.” Idalski and Chamberlain Hrdlicka’s Employment and Labor Group represented Gate Guard in the two earlier decisions that were supported by this recent appellate victory.
