Healthcare Service Companies Unpaid Overtime Allegations
Healthcare Service companies such as Maryland-based Maxim Healthcare Services, Inc. operates hundreds of office locations nationwide. The company employs nurses, therapists, medical social workers and home health aides to provide in-home domestic companionship, personal care and related services (i.e., meal preparation, cleaning, shopping, making beds, washing clothes and dishes, cleaning, taking out trash, running errands, providing transportation to appointments, etc.) to clients nationwide.
Alonso Krangle LLP is actively investigating allegations that healthcare/homecare companies allow its employees to work in excess of 40 hours per week, but refuses to pay them overtime wages at one-and-a-half times their normal hourly rate. The FLSA establishes federal minimum wage rules as well as overtime pay laws, under which employees are entitled to one-and-a-half times their regular rate of pay for all hours worked in excess of 40 hours in a week. While there are some limited exemptions to the FLSA’s overtime rules, Maxim Healthcare Services, for example, has already lost the argument that its employees fit under the Act’s “domestic companionship service” exemption because their general housekeeping activities routinely exceed 20% of their total weekly hours.
The FLSA establishes strict penalties for companies that violate its provisions, sometimes up to as much as double back pay damages for firms that are found to be acting in violation of the law. Under the Act, an employee illegally denied overtime pay may file a private lawsuit for back pay and an equal amount as liquidated damages, plus attorney’s fees and court costs. Workers are generally able to recover up to two years of unpaid overtime, or up to three years if their employer intentionally violated wage and hour laws.
