VA Nurses Class Action

This class action was initiated in 1993 by Francis Johnson-Feldmann and numerous other Senior Grade Nurses at the District of Columbia Veterans Administration Medical Center who filed complaints of discrimination with the EEOC challenging the Medical Center’s pay scale for senior nurses. The EEOC has defined the class as: Senior Grade Registered Nurses at the District of Columbia Veterans Administration Medical Center who are female and/or above the age of 40.

March 8, 2004 – We have become aware that the 1099s mailed out last week contained incorrect payment amounts. Our CPA is working to send revised 1099s to the IRS and Class Members ASAP. At this time, they anticipate that you will receive your corrected 1099 late next week.

July 28, 2004 – Payments were sent out last week to class members. Amounts withheld are noted on the check stubs that were sent out. Form 1099s related to these payments will be distributed at a later date.
