Lawsuit against BJC HealthCare alleges wage violations

St. Louis Post-Dispatch, October 23, 2013
A proposed class action lawsuit has been filed against BJC HealthCare on behalf of a nurse who accuses the nonprofit health system of improperly calculating employees' overtime hours and meal breaks. The suit, lodged Monday in Circuit Court of St. Louis, asks for a jury trial to ascertain whether BJC's wage and hour practices are contrary to Missouri law and to enjoin the health system from rounding overtime hours down to the nearest quarter of an hour. The case was filed by Annette Speraneo, of St. Peters, a former BJC nurse who began working at Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis in January 2011 and later transferred to Barnes-Jewish West County Hospital.
