This is a collective and class action case on behalf of patient care employees who were required to work off the clock at Dignity Health. Defendant consistently understaffed their facilities, obligating Plaintiff and similarly situated employees to perform work and input patient information “off the clock.” Defendant failed to prevent or compensate such work, despite their knowledge of it. Defendant has routinely failed to compensate Plaintiffs and all other similarly situated employees for all their work performed, both overtime and non-overtime hours. Plaintiffs demand that Defendant recompensate them in the form of one and one-half times their regular hourly rate of pay for all hours worked in excess of forty hours a week during the relevant time period, four years prior to the filing of this complaint, as well as one hour per day for every missed mandatory meal period, up to thirty days’ wages, and liquidated damages, attorneys’ fees, costs, and interest as provided by law.
