Women's suit alleges for-profit med school failed to pay plaintiffs overtime

By John Suayan | Apr 5, 2019


HOUSTON – Shelly M. Davis-Smith of The Davis Law Firm in Houston has filed a lawsuit on behalf of two former for-profit medical school employees who claim they were not given overtime pay.

Houston federal court records show that Roslyn York and Janie Lopez initiated legal action against Texas Health School, L.P., doing business as Texas Health School, on Apr. 4. THS employed York as an admission representative while Lopez held a financial aid representative position, according to the suit.

The plaintiffs regularly worked in excess of 40 hours per workweek, but the school violated the FLSA when it failed to pay them “at one-and-one half times their hourly rate for hours over (40) in a workweek,” the suit says.

The women purportedly suffered a loss of wages.

A jury trial is requested.
