On May 26, 2016, the Arkansas Supreme Court affirmed the Sebastian County Circuit Court’s order granting summary judgment in favor of Plaintiffs. This is the first opinion interpreting the provisions of the Arkansas Minimum Wage Act. The decision is a significant win for Arkansas’s employees, providing a common sense interpretation of “work” under Arkansas law. The Court explains that employees are entitled to compensation when their employer benefits from activities the employees are required to perform. In other words, an employer cannot make its employees show up and do a task without paying for that time. This is a significant win for Arkansas' workers, and we are pleased to have been part of this important case.
