In 2022, FairLaw Firm filed a federal lawsuit against MedX Staffing and NoMi Health because of their failure to pay the overtime wages required by the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”), 29 U.S.C. §201, et seq., on behalf of one of our clients. In that lawsuit, FairLaw Firm sought to recover not only the overtime wages owed but also double (liquidated) damages plus attorneys’ fees and costs. Two more people then joined the lawsuit before the case was resolved confidentially. The docket for that lawsuit, Poole v. NoMi Health, Inc. and MedX Staffing, Inc., S.D. Fla. Case No.: 1:22-CV-21383-WILLIAMS can be viewed by clicking here.
FairLaw Firm is currently investigating bringing additional cases for several other people who contacted our office to bring claims against MedX Staffing, Inc. and NoMi Health, Inc., who worked in South Florida, who were paid on an hourly basis, but who were (mis)classified as independent contractors and who were not paid overtime wages. Based on our preliminary investigation, MedX Staffing and NoMi Health were not paying nurses, paramedics, and other medical professionals overtime wages by having them sign a document that they were independent contractors and using that as an excuse to not consider them as employees or to pay them overtime wages. Signing a document saying that you are an employee does not make you an independent contractor under federal law, which instead looks to the realities of the circumstances.
If you worked for MedX Staffing, Inc. and/or NoMi Health, Inc., if you worked more than 40 hours a week, and if you were not paid overtime wages, then contact FairLaw Firm for a free consultation to see if we can recover the overtime wages and liquidated damages that you could be entitled to recover.
