Case Report: $2 Million Wage Act Class Action Settlement

On January 14, 2019, settlement checks went out to the more than a thousand class members in a class action we brought against a Massachusetts home healthcare company. We were appointed as counsel for a settlement class of home health aides, who we alleged were required to travel between client sites during the workday for no pay, and whose transportation expenses weren’t reimbursed.

The Court’s final order approved a gross settlement fund in the amount of $2 million for the home health aides.

It was a satisfying conclusion to a hard-fought case that began back in February 2017, and we were happy to secure a good result on behalf of these Massachusetts workers.

Feel free to contact us if you have information regarding the failure of a Massachusetts home health care agency to pay for intraday travel time or to reimburse employees for travel-related expenses. Note: this applies to travel during the work day and not to travel between home and work at the beginning or end of the day.related expenses.
