$7.6 Million Judgment For Louisville Firefighters Upheld On Appeal, Courier-Journal Reports

Friday’s Courier-Journal reports that Louisville “[f]irefighters came another step closer in their quest to get back pay from Louisville Metro Government for 15 years in which they claim their overtime was miscalculated.

On Friday, the Kentucky Court of Appeals upheld a Jefferson Circuit Court ruling that says Louisville violated the firefighters’ contract by not including incentive and longevity pay in calculations for overtime pay. The ruling entitles more than 800 firefighters to pay going back 15 years from when the claim was filed in 2000.

The ruling could cost the city $7.6 million plus interest.”
