Employees are bringing the University of Pennsylvania Health System to court over alleged unpaid overtime.

Four employees — Crystal Holley, Adrianne Corbin, April Smalls and Adam Norris — filed a complaint in April alleging that Penn didn’t pay them for overtime hours during the holidays in 2013, saying Penn violated wage laws. The employees said in the complaint the Penn Health System amended its policy, put pressure on the employees and even threatened to discipline them, The Pennsylvania Record reported on Tuesday.

Holley, Corbin, Smalls and Norris have requested a trial by jury, which would take place in the Pennsylvania Eastern District Court. They hope to be reimbursed for their lost earnings and unpaid overtime, as well as damages, costs and legal fees, according to the complaint.
