Moreland Law Firm Files Class Action Lawsuit on Behalf of RNs and LVNs Required to Work During Unpaid Meal Periods

On Tuesday, November 14, 2017, Moreland Law Firm, P.C. filed suit in Federal Court in Del Rio, Texas against companies operating the Val Verde Regional Medical Center. The case was filed on behalf of Donald Sehr and a class of LVNs and RNs.

Sehr brings claims under the Fair Labor Standards Act (the "FLSA") against the hospital entities. The FLSA is the federal law that requires covered employers pay their employees the minimum wage and overtime. Employers that violate the FLSA are subject to double damages for all of the wages they deprived their workers. Employers are also responsible for the employee's attorneys' fees and costs if the employee prevails.

Sehr is a former employee at Val Verde Regional Medical Center. He claims that the companies operating the hospital automatically deducted pay for meal periods even though the nature of the job required that he and others perform work during those meal periods.

In the lawsuit, Sehr seeks to represent a class of LVNs and RNs at Val Verde Regional Medical Center and is requesting lost wages, liquidated (double) damages, injunctive relief, and attorneys' fees.
