WASHINGTON, Oct 3 (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday declined to hear GEICO General Insurance Co’s appeal of a ruling that the No. 2 auto insurer in the United States must pay overtime wages to its claims investigators after the company had sought to exempt them.
GEICO had challenged a 2015 decision by the Richmond, Virginia-based 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that its investigators are eligible for overtime under federal wage laws. GEICO, headquartered in Chevy Chase, Maryland, is a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway Inc.
