Three Nurses recovered over $100,000 in overtime.

Three LPNs who worked for a national nurse staffing company worked 70-80 hours weekly, but only received their straight hourly rate. The staffing agency incorrectly assumed that LPNs were exempt from overtime. Generally speaking, the only nurses who can be exempt from overtime are Registered Nurses (RNs). After a brief period of litigation, the staffing agency entered into a settlement agreement and paid the LPNs all of their unpaid overtime, an equal amount for liquidated damages, and a separate amount to cover the LPNs reasonable attorney’s fees and litigation costs.
