Potential Home Healthcare Violations Under Fair Labor Standard Act
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.
