Evalyn Beauchamp is leading the class action against Prime Healthcare Centinela LLC, the operator of twelve California hospitals. The lawsuit alleges many grave employee labor law violations. Beauchamp is a social worker who hopes to represent some 400 employees who have been denied overtime pay, meal breaks and rest periods.
According to the proposed class action lawsuit, the twelve hospitals operated by defendant Prime Healthcare forced employees to clock out while still being actively engaged in work. According to the suit, employees were not paid for meal breaks, and when they worked through meal breaks, they were not fairly compensated.
In June of 2011, three employees sued Prime Healthcare alleging similar claims against the company and its hospitals. Prime Healthcare settled those claims for $1.08 million, seeming to indicate that Beauchamp’s claims are not without merit.
