The class action lawsuit claims that Plaintiff engaged in non-exempt tasks throughout her shift, including reviewing her client's pre-injury position, making appointments with the client's doctors, communicating in-person and by telephone with her clients, employers, medical providers, attorneys, insurance carriers and claims adjustors.
The class action Complaint also states Nurse Case Managers should be paid overtime pay because the Case Managers allegedly use their RN training to coordinate care, act as intermediaries between patients, adjustors, and doctors and operate in a framework in "which these employees do not exercise ultimate decision making power." As such, the Complaint claims that the Case Managers do not fall under any of California's overtime exemptions for employees.
