Questions of SUPREME Importance: Transportation Issues before the U.S. Supreme Court in the 2022 Term
Join Jenny Eaton and Curtis Cornett as they explore the issues at stake in Mallory v. Norfolk Southern and Helix Energy Solutions Group, Inc. v. Hewitt. In Mallory v. Norfolk Southern, the Court will address whether transportation companies who register to do business in states like Pennsylvania must consent to be sued in those states for lawsuit that have no other connection to the state. The Court will grapple with issues of due process, general v. specific jurisdiction, and the true meaning of consent. Jenny Eaton will help participants understand the history and recent case law of the Court on these jurisdiction issues and how this decision may have serious, wide-ranging implications for any national transportation company.
In Helix Energy Solutions Group, Inc. v. Hewitt, the Court will discuss the unique employment arrangements of offshore oil workers and how federal overtime law applies to parts of the maritime world. At issue is whether a supervisor making more than $200,000, working less than half the days of the year, is nevertheless not exempted as a highly compensated employee from the Fair Labor Standards Act. Curtis will help explain the complicated statutory and regulatory framework and where else this in the transportation world employers should be concerned about running afoul of the regulations.
This webinar will start at 1PM CST / 2PM EST.
