Health Workers Granted Conditional Certification in Colorado Hospital Overtime Lawsuit

Schneider Wallace represents hospital workers in a collective wage and hour lawsuit brought against Delta County Memorial Hospital (DCMH) in October 2019.  The lawsuit alleges the Colorado hospital network required nurses and other staff to work before they clocked in, work after their shifts ended, work after they clocked out, and failed to provide uninterrupted meal breaks.  On March 2, 2021, U.S. District Judge R. Brooke Jackson granted the health care workers’ motion for conditional certification, finding that the plaintiff’s complaint “provided substantial allegations that effectively forced hourly patient care employees to work unpaid overtime while off-the-clock.”
