"BlackBerry Clicks Can Up Company Costs," National Law Journal
This article discusses the importance for employers to implement policies that address overtime work and pay of non-exempt employees. The common use of recent technology, such as BlackBerrys, after work hours, has created an area of concern for employers who loosely regulate overtime work, possibly leading to litigation. Jeremy Roth of Littler's San Diego office comments on this emerging issue. "If the employee says, 'Lets take a look at my BlackBerry,' you now have a record. If it's a text message, or a Wi-Fi at Starbucks -- if they're nonexempt and they're off the clock, that's a problem for employers," says Roth.
