Nurses in Illinois Sue Healthcare Giant Ascension Health Over Claim of Wage Theft

A class-action lawsuit filed Tuesday in Will County claims over 90 nurses at Ascension Saint Joseph in Joliet weren’t paid wages they had been promised leading up to a lockout late last year.

The suit, filed in Will County circuit court, accuses healthcare giant Ascension Health of wage theft for allegedly failing to pay nurses Kaitlynd French, Beth Corsetti and over 90 others prior to the November lockout, according to a statement from the Illinois Nurses Association (INA).

The complaint claims Ascension Health agreed to pay the nurses extra to work shifts beyond their normal schedules, then refused to pay them after the shifts had been worked.
