Workers in some hospitals are getting a glimpse of what it will be like when the Affordable Care Act becomes law.
The Federal Trade Commission filed a lawsuit Thursday against an Ohio hospital for failing to hire enough workers, saying it violated its rules.
The lawsuit, filed in federal court in Cincinnati, says the hospital violated its obligations to pay the minimum wage and overtime requirements.
The hospital had an unemployment rate of 10 percent, but its unemployment rate during the last three months of 2016 was 12.3 percent, the lawsuit said.
It was not clear if the hospital would be fined or if it would face any penalties.
In January, a federal judge found the Ohio Hospital Association had violated the Fair Labor Standards Act by failing to provide overtime and minimum wage protections.
The agency said the hospital failed to provide the required training for workers who received the minimum pay.
