A former nurse practitioner for a medical services company in Illinois may not proceed with her claim that the company failed to properly compensate her for overtime, as required by the Fair Labor Standards Act. She was an exempt employee and wasn’t subject to the Act’s requirements because she was compensated “per patient encounter” on a fee basis, and her responsibilities, such as assessing and treating patients, required advanced knowledge and training in a specialized field. The case is Mayhew v. Gen. Med., 2020 BL 20221, S.D. Ill., No. 18-cv-2177-RJD, 1/21/20.
