Overtime lawsuit by Quicken employees fails

Ryan Henry was the lead plaintiff in a lawsuit against Quicken Loans, arguing it violated the law on overtime pay.  Henry and other mortgage bankers claimed that Quicken's overtime policy violated the Fair Labor Standards Act. Quicken argued that the bankers were supervisory employees (the "quarterbacks" of the company) and not "front-line" employees, while the bankers alleged they were simply sales staff.  After a lenghthy trial, the jury decided the facts in favor of Quicken and the Sixth Circuit upheld this decision on appeal.  The basic disagreement here is whether Quicken "wannabe" executives ought to spend more of Quicken's profits on employees' compensation, and less of its money sponsoring football Bowl games and adopting football analogies.
