Health Care Workers May Face Wage Theft

Health care workers are essential to our everyday society, and deserve to be treated as such. Medical workers are often subject to long hours only amplified by the heavy emotional impact of their work. And if that weren’t enough, unfortunately, they may be affected by wage theft as well.

One such form wage theft may take is unpaid overtime. That can present itself in several ways, from being misclassified as an exempt worker or independent contractor to not being paid for all the hours worked. 

While unpaid overtime is often cause for concern, health care workers in multiple fields — including lab technicians, elective surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurse practitioners, phlebotomists, and more — should also be aware of their contractual rights if their position is terminated or they experience a layoff. 

Many health care workers — whether they’re aware of it or not — have a provision in their contract that they must receive advance notice if they are laid off. This notice could be for as many as 30-60 days in advance. 

If a medical professional is laid off without notice or with fewer days’ notice than their contract stipulates, they may be owed back pay or other compensation for that time that should’ve elapsed between notice and termination. This could affect workers across the field, whether they work for a single office, large healthcare company, or hospital network. 

If you work in the medical field and believe you did not receive appropriate notice before a layoff, you may be owed compensation. Contact one of our attorneys for a free, confidential consultation to see how you can fight for the compensation you earned.

Unbelievably organized, responsive and probably the most effective process-oriented group of people I've ever seen. Their preparation for mediation and trial is beyond comprehensive. Across two cases and 3 years, not once did anything fall between the cracks. Everyone I came into contact with exemplifies professionalism; they quickly resolved insurance issues and spent time educating me about everything affecting my cases.

General Injury
It has been an amazing experience with your law firm. I will be happy to refer any of my family and friends to your law firm. I am very thankful to Sabrina Thornburg and Andrew Felix for everything that they have done on my case. Sabrina kept in touch with me to let me know how everything was going and I am very happy with the service that she and Andrew provided. Your slogan really is true, you are for the people. Thank you.

Slip and Fall
I was very happy with the communication between the legal counsel and myself. If I had any questions I could leave it if not directly and I would have an answer within 24 hours by either email or a courtesy phone call. Also, the quick resolution of the matter was something I appreciate very much. Needless to say the result was more than expected.

I originally hired a different law firm after being involved in a multi-car accident on the interstate, but after a few conversations, arguments, and showing me other cases were more important than mine, I called and hired Morgan & Morgan! That was one of the best decisions I've made as an adult! Not only have they been in contact with me, but they listened and found mistakes in the crash report that the officer didn't want to admit to! I'm beyond thankful!
