Nurses sue over working lunches - Houston Chronicle
This hospital takes 30 minutes out of the nurse's pay each day for an assumed lunch break even if one was not taken. This was the same practice that was used at my hospital up until about a year ago. Now we have to clock out on our own, but could potentially get in trouble for not taking a lunch break or not being clocked out for a full 30 minutes, meaning we just clock out for 30 minutes whether we are able to take a break or not.
Memorial Hermann is a large hospital group in Houston. I wonder if other hospitals will change their policies?
