Recommendation #15 To: Athletic Commission, State

The athletic commission immediately should cease paying the 18 athletic inspectors discussed in the report an overtime rate for work they perform and inform all athletic inspectors that it will compensate them at the classification's straight-time rate unless their work meets the criteria for receiving overtime under the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938.

Agency Response From December 2012

The athletic commission ceased paying overtime to the employees in October 2012. It is working with the Department of Consumer Affairs to recoup overpayments that it made the last three years. (See 2013-406, p. 281)
