Nurses file lawsuit against Mercy Pittsburgh Health System

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, April 2, 2009

Two former employees filed a federal lawsuit against the Pittsburgh Mercy Health System, alleging it failed to pay them for training and for work they did during meal breaks over at least a three-year period.The lawsuit seeks class-action status and could cover as many as 4,000 people who worked for the hospital system. On April 1, the same law firm representing the Mercy employees filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of hourly workers at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and West Penn Allegheny Health System, saying the health systems did not pay them for the hours they've worked.
