Liberty v. Northwell Health, Inc. d/b/a North Shore University Hospital Case No.: 2:18-cv-01633

On March 15, 2018, Plaintiff Ms. Liberty, filed a civil action lawsuit in United States District Court – Eastern District of New York against her employer, Northwell Health, Inc. d/b/a North Shore University Hospital. The complaint alleges as follows:

Ms. Liberty worked for Defendant – a corporation with several hospitals, medical clinics, and rehabilitation centers scattered throughout the state of New York – from August 3, 1983 until December 5, 2017. Most recently, from August 21, 2011 through the end of her employment in December 2017, Ms. Liberty worked for Defendant as a patient safety specialist and a nursing supervisor. For the three-year period pre-dating the commencement of this action, Defendant willfully failed to pay Plaintiff, an hourly employee, the wages lawfully due to her under the Fair Labor Standards Act. Specifically, Defendant required Plaintiff to work between eight and twelve hours per day, with a range of between forty and sixty hours per week. Nonetheless, Defendant intentionally failed to compensate Ms. Liberty at the statutorily-required overtime rate for each hour that she worked per week in excess of forty, and instead paid her at her hourly rate for all hours worked over forty.
