HOUSTON — Two registered nurses are suing Weimar medical facility owners, alleging breach of employment agreements.

Christopher Scorsolini and Lisa Ford, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, filed a class action complaint Dec. 13 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Weimer Medical Center and Irving B. Sawyers Jr., alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.

According to the complaint, since Nov. 10, 2016, Scorsolini and Ford suffered monetary damages for not receiving any wages even though they performed compensable nursing work. The plaintiffs allege the defendants stopped paying them and all other employees on Nov. 10.

The plaintiffs seek trial by jury, compensation for all hours worked at their regular rate of pay and overtime compensation for all hours worked in excess of 40 per week, liquidated damages, attorney fees, court costs and expenses, plus all other relief. They are represented by attorney Robert R. Debes Jr. of Shellist Lazarz Slobin LLP in Houston.
