Registered Nurse recovers $35,000 in overtime pay

A registered nurse who worked at one facility through a staffing agency worked 80-90 hours per week, but was only paid a straight time rate. The staffing agency concocted a novel approach to circumventing the Fair Labor Standards Act by reducing the RN’s hourly rate and paying overtime on the reduced rate so that the total compensation paid calculated out to be the original agreed upon straight time rate. Robert S. Norell filed suit on behalf of this RN. The staffing agency quickly realized it was going to lose the case and decided to pay all of the overtime that was due, plus an equal amount for liquidated damages, and a separate amount for the RN’s reasonable attorney’s fees and costs. If your employer tries to pull this scheme on you, call Robert S. Norell for a free consultation.
