Righttime Medical Care Sued
Two former and one current employee are suing Davidsonville-based Righttime Medical Care, claiming they weren't paid overtime wages and required to perform work "off the clock."
The case was initially filed in U.S. District Court in Baltimore in February, according to online court records. In an amended complaint filed with the court earlier this month, the employees claim that workers at the clinic were regularly required to work over 40 hours a week, receiving only "straight time" pay. The urgent care clinic has about a dozen locations, including in Annapolis, Pasadena and Arundel Mills.
The complaint names Righttime's Chief Executive Officer Dr. Robert Graw, and Director of Mid-level Services Jon Gonella as either instructing or having approved of the practices. John A. Bourgeois, a Baltimore-based attorney representing Righttime, did not immediately return a call for comment on Friday.
On May 13, U.S. District Court Judge granted the plaintiff's motion for a 60-day period allowing other plaintiffs to opt into the suit, said attorney Judd Millman of Towson, who represents the employees.
The parties have until Wednesday to work out an agreement on how best to notify other potential plaintiffs about the suit, he said.
Millman noted that under the law a plaintiff can only collect up to the past two years of wages from the time they join the suit.
