Pharmaceutical sales reps have to be paid overtime…psych!


Raise your hands if you’re familiar with the hit television show, “Psych,” you know, the one about a psychic detective named Shawn Spencer and his pharmaceutical sales rep best friend, Burton “Gus” Guster. Well, Gus’s boss will be happy to learn that if Gus works more than 40 hours a week, he no longer has to be paid overtime!

This week, the Supreme Court ruled that pharmaceutical sales reps are exempt from the Fair Labor Standards Act’s (FLSA) overtime wage requirements. Sorry Gus, but, hey, you always have the psychic crime fighting profession to fall back on!
