Case Title: Mikle v. Sagora Senior Living
Case No. 1:19-cv-00044
On January 28, 2019, we filed this collective and class action on behalf of all hourly nursing assistants who were employed by Sagora Senior Living.
What is the Case about?
We filed this collective action against Sagora in the U.S. Eastern District Court of Texas for a class of hourly employees who were not paid for all hours worked.
The Case alleges that Sagora violated the Fair Labor Standards Act by failing to pay employees for all hours worked. Specifically, Sagora brazenly shaves time worked off employees clocked hours and not pay for those hours worked.
Plaintiff believes that she and other hourly employees are entitled to recover unpaid wages, unpaid overtime, interest on the unpaid wages, liquidated damages, attorney’s fees, and costs.
Who is Eligible for this Case?
Anyone who worked for Sagora Senior Living as an hourly nursing assistant employee within the past three years is potentially eligible for the Case.

Can I be fired for joining?
