    Wondering what is going on in WA state with the class action lawsuit against USIC for not paying their employees drive-time. It is state law in WA that employees with a commercial vehicle be paid from the time he/she starts the vehicle until the time it is shut down. Any locator that has EVER worked for CLS-USIC in WA is about to get PAID!

    I'm not sure how that is going to fly considering Federal Law basically is a total opposite. That's why we get credited with an additional $3.00 per day that we don't actually receive but we pay the taxes on to the IRS.

    Federal labor law does not supersede state labor law, see the 14th amendment.

    Not to be a spoil sport but Federal Labor laws, such as Minimum Wage and OT after 40 hrs are the law and the States do not have the right to supercede them.

    The 14th amendment gives the states the right to make laws that go beyond federal law, as long as it is not in conflict with the minimums set by federal law. The handgun ban in Chicago is a prime example of this, it was finally struck down by the supreme court after being a law for around two decades.

    This lawsuit may come down to the states interpretation of what a commercial vehicle is, some states only recognize a vehicle that has a DOT number as being commercial.
