A Wisconsin-based healthcare worker recently filed a proposed collective and class action complaint against an assisted living facility alleging it required all employees to undergo mandatory temperature checks and complete a COVID-19 symptom checklist before being allowed to clock in for the day, resulting in unpaid overtime. In addition to individual claims that her manager instructed her to perform off-the-clock work, she also alleges collective and class action claims that her employer improperly deducted daily 30-minute meal breaks from employees’ work times when, in fact, they were not actually relieved from their job duties. What can employers learn from this pandemic-related wage and hour action?
