HOUSTON – A nurse has filed a class-action lawsuit against a medical care provider alleging she is owed overtime compensation.
Amber Li filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on July 26 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against TH Healthcare LTD, doing business as Park Plaza Hospital, alleging that the medical care provider violated the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she regularly worked for more than 40 hours per week without receiving full compensation for those extra hours. The plaintiff holds TH Healthcare LTD responsible because the defendant allegedly also failed to take into account all remunerations when calculating the regular hourly and overtime rates.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensation for all unpaid overtime wages, an equal amount as liquidated damages, attorneys' fees, costs, and expenses and such other relief to which she may be entitled. She is represented by Todd Slobin and Ricardo J. Prieto of Shellist | Lazarz | Slobin LLP in Houston.
