Motorcoach operator qualifies for overtime exemption, court rules

A motorcoach operator that operates mostly in Florida but holds interstate authority and provides services that are bundled with an international cruise operation is under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Department of Transportation and, therefore, qualifies for the overtime exemption from the Fair Labor Standards Act, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit ruled.

The decision upholds a grant of summary judgment by a lower court in favor of American Coach Lines of Miami.
