Indiana Supreme Court to hear state back-pay dispute

The Indiana Supreme Court is stepping into a dispute between the state and thousands of workers involving back pay.

The class-action lawsuit argued that some state employees were required to work 40 hours a week while others were paid the same for working 37.5 hours.

A trial judge ruled the workers were entitled to $42.4 million in back pay, but the state Court of Appeals ordered that judgment reduced last fall.

The Indiana Supreme Court will hear arguments in the case Sept. 8.
