FRANK & BIANCO LLP Files Class Action Lawsuit Against North Shore-LIJ Health System

FRANK & BIANCO LLP has filed a class action complaint in the Supreme Court of New York, New York County, captioned Weinberg v. North Shore-LIJ Health System, Case No. 153122/2013. The lawsuit is filed on behalf of persons who were medical residents, including fellows in training programs (“Medical Residents”), at North Shore-LIJ Health System and its member hospitals (“North Shore-LIJ”), from January 1, 1995, through and including March 31, 2005 (the “Class Period”).

The lawsuit alleges that North Shore-LIJ failed to adequately notify Medical Residents of the availability of a refund of Federal Insurance Contributions Act (“FICA”) taxes that North Shore-LIJ improperly withheld from Medical Residents during the Class Period.

In 2010 the U.S. Treasury Department made available a refund of the improperly withheld FICA taxes upon its receipt of a consent form from the Medical Residents. From July through August 2010, North Shore-LIJ mailed the consent form for the refund to the Medical Residents. That consent form needed to be signed and returned to North Shore-LIJ in order for the Medical Residents to receive the refund.

The complaint alleges that North Shore-LIJ did not adequately update the up to 15 year old addresses it had on file for its Medical Residents before mailing the consent form. As a result, Plaintiff and other members of the Class did not receive notice of the FICA tax refund, did not receive the consent form, and therefore, were not refunded tens of thousands of dollars of improperly withheld FICA taxes.

If you were a Medical Resident at North Shore-LIJ, or one of its member hospitals, from January 1, 1995, through and including March 31, 2005, and wish to discuss this litigation, or have any questions concerning this Notice or your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact us.
