VA Connecticut Healthcare System – Unpaid Meal Break Overtime Lawsuit

In September 2020, a class action lawsuit was filed in the United States Court of Federal Claims on behalf of Neil Bidon, R.N., David Capuano, R.N., Eileen Donaghey, R.N., Judy Gordon, R.N., Kathleen Kus, R.N., Margarita Ortiz, R.N., Elaine Rinsland, R.N., Stephanie Roach, R.N., and Lorraine Suchy, R.N., and on behalf of all other past or present Registered Nurses (I, II or III) employed by the Department of Veterans Affairs, Connecticut Healthcare System facilities.

  1. Currently or was previously employed as a Registered Nurse at any VA Connecticut Healthcare System facility; and
