Potential Home Healthcare Violations

By The Evans Law Firm of The Evans Law Firm posted in nursing home abuse on Monday, April 22, 2013.

– ATTORNEY NEWSLETTER – 

Under the Fair Labor Standard Act (FLSA), the federal wage and hour law, a dramatic number of class action and collective issues have been filed against home healthcare employers. Such actions filed by plaintiff’s attorneys have alleged that clinicians in home healthcare facilities have been improperly classified as exempt and improperly compensated under both FLSA and state law. Other class action suits have accused employers of home healthcare facilities of failing to pay for overtime, forcing employees to work while off the clock and to pay for their travel time. All of these are violations of FLSA and state rules.

Employees of home healthcare facilities would be well advised to seek guidance regarding potential violations that may occur under FLSA and state rules. Workers with concerns regarding their treatment in these facilities should have their needs addressed through knowledgeable counsel.

The Evans Law Firm is available to assist employees with any questions dealing with their experience within the home healthcare industry and its compliance with FLSA rules. You may reach us at info@evanslaw.com, or by phone at (888) 503-8267 or (415) 441-8669.
