Licensed Practical Nurse paid salary recovers $12,000 in unpaid overtime
This client worked as a licensed practical nurse for a medical doctor. She was paid a straight salary, but required to work through her lunch break and also required to stay until the last patient was seen by the doctor. She was paid a salary that was based on 40 hours per week. In just under 2 months after filing suit, Robert S. Norell was able to negotiate a settlement with the doctor that compensated the client for all of her unpaid overtime, an equal amount for liquidated damages, and a separate amount for her reasonable attorney’s fees and costs.
