Overtime Settlement for Home Care Workers
Almost fifteen hundred home care workers will will recover $1.1 million in settlement of a class-action case against their employer. The recovery is against non-profit McMillan’s Home Care Agency. The case was originally filed in 2010, alleging blatant violation of wage-and-hour laws for New York City workers with individuals working up to 60 hours a week without additional compensation. Approximately one in seven low wage earners in New York are in the home care industry.
