You might remember that last year, I wrote a piece about a legal battle in Oakhurst Dairies of Maine and its drivers. The case was over $10million the drivers said they were owed in back overtime pay, and hinged around a comma missing in law concerting overtime payments made years before.
If you need a refresher, here it is:
The Curious Case of the Missing Comma.
Turns out both sides have agreed to split the difference: in February, the company agreed to pay its drivers $5million to settle the dispute … over a missing comma.
So don’t let anyone ever tell you that punctuation doesn’t matter.
