Yes, a nurse practitioner (PA) may be able to file a class action unpaid overtime lawsuit if multiple employees at the same company are being denied overtime wages. Overtime pay lawsuits are often filed by an entire group of nurse practitioners against a hospital or medical facility for payment of back overtime wages. If multiple employees at the same business have unpaid overtime claims, they may be able to file a collective Wage and Hour action to recover their unpaid wages.
Wage and Hour lawsuits can be filed as individual lawsuits or collective actions, also known as “class action lawsuits.” The FLSA provides employees the right to a file private action against an employer for unpaid minimum wages and overtime pay. These lawsuits are brought by one employee against the employer and other similarly situated employees have no involvement in the case.
Nurse practitioner class action unpaid overtime lawsuits are filed by the entire group and provide each employee with more strength in numbers to fight against a large business and their high paid legal team. An employee can also join an existing class action lawsuit if it has already been filed for unpaid overtime pay. There are strict time deadlines for filing lawsuits so it is essential that you contact an attorney immediately.
