  • Claims adjusters still do not have a definitive answer to the question of whether they are exempt or non-exempt employees entitled to overtime compensation. The California Supreme Court recently issued its decision in Harris v. Superior Court, an overtime pay case that addresses whether certain claims adjusters are exempt under California‚Äôs Industrial Welfare Commission Wage Order 4, which provides that all employees who are not exempt be paid at a rate of one and one half times their regular rate of pay for all hours worked in excess of 40 hours in any work week.
