Baseball Stadium Workers Not Owed Overtime

A baseball stadium concessions operator in Maryland is exempt from paying overtime, a federal appeals court ruled ( Hill v. Del. N. Cos. Sportservice, Inc. , 2d Cir., No. 15-2109, 10/3/16 ).

Delaware North Companies Sportservice Inc., which sells food, beverages and merchandise inside Oriole Park at Camden Yards, is covered by a Fair Labor Standards Act exemption for businesses engaged in amusement or recreational activities on a seasonal basis, Judge Barrington D. Parker wrote Oct. 3 for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. The company doesn’t directly provide amusement or recreation, but its primary purpose is selling goods and services to enhance spectators’ experience during Baltimore Orioles games.

Delaware North conducts business in Oriole Park through its subsidiary, Maryland Sportservice Inc., and has similar operations at a number of professional and college sports venues. The ruling could affect overtime eligibility for concessions workers at its other locations.

MASN Dispute Won’t Be Resolved by MLB Panel

Just another baby step toward the (non) resolution of the MASN dispute between the Orioles and Nationals.

A New York Supreme Court justice ruled Monday that the Orioles-controlled Mid-Atlantic Sports Network won’t have to return next month to a Major League Baseball arbitration panel to have its long-running television rights fee dispute with the Washington Nationals decided.
