Claims Against Healthcare Companies for Failing to Pay Doctors and Nurses All Wages Owed
Stueve Siegel Hanson and Forbes Law Group have filed a class and collective action complaint in Kansas federal court against three physician group and healthcare management companies alleging they failed to pay all hours worked by nurses employed at the medical groups’ healthcare providers – including failing to pay overtime to compensate working more than 40 hours in a single workweek. The same lawyers are also investigating similar claims on behalf of doctors in Missouri and Kansas against the same companies for failure to pay all wages due and owing under the applicable compensation agreement.
The Kansas lawsuit alleges that employees regularly performed critical and necessary work outside of their pre-scheduled shifts, including treating patients and writing, updating, and maintaining patient medical records; and worked more than 40 hours per week, time for which they were not paid.
The lawsuit seeks recovery for unpaid wages and overtime owed to healthcare providers employed by the defendants Envision Healthcare Corporation, EmCare Holdings, Inc. and Kansas EM-I Medical Services, P.A.
While the lawsuit alleges the unlawful practices have taken place in Kansas, brought as a collective action under the Fair Labor Standards Act – it also asserts a national class for breach of contract and other common law claims, as well as for violations of state wage payment laws. The full complaint is available here.
