NEW ORLEANS - The Fifth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals on Dec. 5 upheld the rejection of an argument by an adult novelty store that two employees seeking unpaid overtime were not entitled to any compensation or attorney fees after the employees rejected the employer's attempt to pay them a settlement amount determined by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) (Shannon Owens, et al. v. Marstek, L.L.C., et al., No. 13-10347, 5th Cir.; 2013 U.S. App. LEXIS 24188).
