GCA Production Services, a transportation company that shuttled rental cars between Seattle-Tacoma International Airport and nearby Avis Budget locations, fell outside the reach of the city of SeaTac’s $15 minimum wage law. Therefore, the company doesn’t owe a group of employees for allegedly underpaying them, according to a recent ruling by the Washington Court of Appeals.
The Seattle suburb’s 2014 ordinance only applies to transportation employers who operate or provide such services while running a fleet of 100 or more vehicles.
A unanimous panel held that GCA Production Services, an Avis Budget contractor, was not a transportation employer under the ordinance.
