We represented a medical center in a collective action filed by a former nurse alleging that she and other current and former employees were required to work “off the clock”. The plaintiff claimed that the medical center’s time system made an automatic deduction of 30 minutes every shift, presuming she received a meal period, when in fact on occasion she had to work through (or during) her meal period, resulting in her working off the clock. The potential class action involved approximately 8,000 current and former employees. Prior to conditional certification and after extensive evaluation of case, including interviews conducted with several hundred managers and potential class members, the matter was settled at mediation based upon the medical center’s self-correction.
