San Francisco Nurses Sue City Over Missed Breaks - Class Action Lawsuit Claims Nurses at Public Hospitals Were Denied Meal, Rest Breaks

A class action lawsuit was filed on February 6, 2024, against the city and county of San Francisco by three nurses alleging they are not being provided with the mandated meal and rest breaks due to understaffing. In addition, the plaintiffs allege the employers are failing to provide pay compensation when a meal or rest break is not provided. The nurses claim the missed breaks cause fatigue that can adversely affect patient care.
