Mass. Supreme Judicial Court Issues Groundbreaking Worker Overtime Ruling

Appearing on WGBY’s “Connecting Point,” Claudia Quintero (above), a lawyer with the Central West Justice Center, discussed her work on a groundbreaking case before the Supreme Judicial Court on behalf of employees of a farm in South Deerfield, Mass. In Arias-Villano v. Chang & Sons Enterprises, the court found that the workers were entitled to overtime pay because the work they performed was not the same as farm work, which is not entitled to overtime pay. Joining Quintero was Bill Newman, an attorney with the ACLU and a former board member of the Massachusetts Legal Assistance Corporation. Watch the interview on Connecting Point.
