Carroll v. Guardian Home Care Holdings, Inc. 3:14-cv-01722 (M.D. Tenn.):
In this lawsuit, an RN challenged her employer’s refusal to pay overtime.  The RN and others like her were paid a “fee per visit” and were not paid any extra overtime when they worked over 40 hours per week.  Because the employer also paid the workers by the hour for meetings and for other tasks, the lawsuit alleged that the employer was in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.  The case settled for $3,000,000.  Click here to read about the case in The Tennessean.
