Fitapelli & Schaffer, LLP filed a class and collective lawsuit on August 31, 2017 against River Manor Care Center a/k/a Atrium Center for Rehabilitation and Nursing (“River Manor”) on behalf of licensed practical nurses (“LPNs”) who worked at River Manor located at 611 East 103rd Street and 630 East 104th Street in Brooklyn, New York. The lawsuit claims that River Manor has failed to pay wages and overtime compensation for all hours worked as required by the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) and/or the New York Labor Law (“NYLL”). Additionally, the lawsuit alleges that River Manor made unlawful deductions from LPNs wages. Affected employees include any current and former LPNs and other similarly situated employees who were not paid for all hours worked at River Manor Care Center a/k/a Atrium Center within the last six years.
Plaintiff alleges that he and other LPNs regularly worked beyond their scheduled shift, but were not compensated for all of their hours worked. LPNs at River Manor were responsible for providing medication to patients, dressing wounds, changing wound dressings, making rounds, checking in on patients, feeding patients, checking patients for injuries, bathing patients, and filling out paperwork related to patients. This lawsuit seeks to recover unpaid wages and unpaid overtime for the hours that LPNs worked at River Manor but were not compensated for.
