Were you looking for Caregiver Overtime lawsuits?

A representative action complaint has been filed against the hospital for allegedly failing to pay overtime compensation to employees.

The suit further claims that Baptist has no written policy governing how it would account for hours worked before an employee's shift begins or ends or for work performed during unpaid break or lunch periods.
