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.
