Tenet Healthcare Settles Overtime Class Action for $85 Million

Three hospitals in Orange County, CA, owned by Tenet Healthcare, have settled an overtime class action with nurses and medical staff for $85 million.

Don Pagaduan, a respiratory therapist from Mission Viejo, brought the class action when the California law on employee entitlements to overtime took effect in 2000.

According to media reports some 23,000 current and former Tenet hospital employees throughout California qualify for cash payments, which could range from $150 to $30,000 per person. One 57-year old man who worked as a respiratory therapist at Western Medical Center-Santa Ana, expects to receive nearly $9,000.
