Getman, Sweeney & Dunn has filed an overtime pay lawsuit on behalf of home healthcare workers against Humana, Inc., Humana at Home, Inc., and SeniorBridge Family Companies (CT), Inc. for violations of Federal and state overtime laws. The Plaintiff brought the case on behalf of home healthcare workers who worked for the Defendants anywhere in the United States. She claims that the Defendants failed to pay its home healthcare workers overtime as required by state and federal law. She is asking the Court to award her and the class unpaid overtime wages and an equal amount of liquidated damages for failing to pay the wages on time. You can view the Complaint in the case here.
We are looking for people who can confirm facts related to the claims in this case. The law concerning pay for home healthcare workers recently changed—as of January 1, 2015. Now, many home healthcare workers must be paid the overtime premium (“time and a half”) for hours worked over 40, even if they are paid a per diem rate and even if they were told that they are not eligible to get overtime pay. There are only a few exceptions to this law (called “exemptions”).
We are looking for people who are able to verify the pay practices for home healthcare workers who are working or have worked for the Defendants since January 1, 2015. This could include home healthcare workers or other positions within these companies.
