On February 22, the Supreme Court ruled 6 to 3 in Helix Energy Solutions Group v. Hewitt that the former employee was eligible for overtime because he was paid on a daily basis.  The former employee who was an offshore oil rig worker was classified as a "bona fide executive" earning more than $200,000 annually and working approximately 84 hours a week.  The supreme court ruled that since the employee was not paid on a salary basis but rather a daily basis they are entitled to overtime.
