Massachusetts-based Partners Healthcare to pay $2.7 million in back wages

AP/Boston Globe, July 24, 2009
Partners Healthcare, the largest hospital and physician network in Massachusetts, has agree to pay $2.7 million in overtime back wages to 700 employees. The agreement resolves a lawsuit filed by the U.S. Department of Labor alleging violations of the federal Fair Labor Standards Act, which requires workers be paid time and one-half their regular wage for hours worked beyond 40 in a week.
