Case No. 2023-CA-012061 in the Circuit Court of the Thirteenth Judicial Circuit in and for Hillsborough County, Florida, Civil Division

Case Home

A court authorized your Notice. It is not a solicitation from a lawyer.

Your notice relates to a proposed settlement in a class action lawsuit which alleges that Defendant Med-Call Healthcare, Inc., and Defendant Risher Dumpit, Individually, violated the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) and Florida law. Plaintiff Sharley Bass (“Plaintiff”) alleged that Med-Call violated the FLSA and Florida law generally by failing to comply with the FLSA’s overtime requirements. Specifically, the Action alleges that Med-Call failed to include compensable on-call and travel time in its overtime payments and also failed to include hourly stipends in calculating the overtime rate for its nurses and nursing assistants at vaccination sites in violation of 29 U.S.C. § 207. The two sides disagree as to whether Med-Call’s conduct was permitted under the FLSA and Florida law, whether Med-Call would be liable under the FLSA and Florida law with respect to that conduct and, if so, the extent of any such liability. The parties have, however, agreed to resolve the lawsuit through a Court-supervised settlement.

  • Membership in the settlement class will be determined based upon Med-Call’s records.
  • You are received notice because Med-Call’s records indicate that you are a Class Member, so you are eligible to participate in this class action settlement.


How to Get Paid from the Settlement:

You do not need to file a claim through the Settlement Website. If you do not opt-out and the Court grants final approval of the Class Settlement, you will be sent a Settlement Check. The amount of your Settlement Check will be determined by dividing: 100% of the Net Settlement Fund by the number of Class Members based upon the number of pay periods and/or hours worked by each class member during the Class Period.

What happens if you do nothing:

If the Court approves the settlement and you do nothing, you will be releasing your claims and you will receive your share of a class action settlement. The Full Release and Released Parties are available on the Important Court Documents page.

How to ask that you be excluded:
