Class Action Lawsuit Filed on Behalf of RNs and LVNs Required to Work During Unpaid Meal Periods

On Monday, July 31, 2018, Moreland Law Firm, P.C. filed suit in Federal Court in San Antonio, Texas against three Sava Senior Care entities, SSC Kerrville Hilltop Village Operating Company LLC, SSC Kerrville Edgewater Operating Company LLC, and SSC Kerrville Alpine Terrace Operating Company LLC. The case was filed on behalf of Rosario Passmore, Brenda L. Chafton, and a class of LVNs and RNs.

Passmore and Chafton bring claims under the Fair Labor Standards Act (the “FLSA”) against the Sava Senior Care entities. The FLSA is the federal law that requires covered employers to pay their employees the minimum wage and overtime. Employers that violate the FLSA are subject to double damages for all of the wages they failed to pay their workers. Employers are also responsible for an employee’s attorneys’ fees and costs if the employee prevails.

Passmore and Chafton are a former employees at Sava. They claim that the companies automatically deducted pay for meal periods even though the nature of the job required that they and others perform work during those meal periods.

In the lawsuit, Passmore and Chafton seek to represent a class of LVNs and RNs at the three Sava Senior Care facilities in Kerrville, Texas and they are requesting lost wages, liquidated (double) damages, injunctive relief, attorneys’ fees, costs, and expenses.
