4/21/2008: Class Action Complaint Filed against Fremont-Rideout Health Group ("FRHG")
On April 3, 2008, David Cooke and Glenn Green, through the law firm of Kershaw, Cutter & Ratinoff, filed a class action complaint against Fremont-Rideout Health Group ("FRHG”)
. Defendant FRHG owns and operates numerous health care facilities in Northern California, including Fremont Medical Center in Yuba City and Rideout Memorial Hospital in Marysville.
Plaintiffs David Cooke and Glenn Green, who are both current employees of FRHG, are suing on behalf of all Registered Nurses, Licensed Vocational Nurses, Monitor Technicians and Respiratory Therapists employed by FRHG in California from March 28, 2004 to the present.
Among the claims asserted in the complaint are allegations that FRHG failed to provide them with meal and rest periods that comply with California law. Plaintiffs believe that the class has been denied compliant meal periods because of the system-wide work schedules imposed by FRHG, which do not permit them to take a work-free meal period within the time required by law.
Plaintiffs also believe that FRHG adopted an invalid alternative workweek schedule, which could result in the payment of significant overtime wages for each 12-hour shift.
The class action complaint was filed in Yuba County Superior Court.
