We are handling a number of home health care cases on behalf of classes of home health care workers denied wages for their travel time between client sites. We recently gained court approval for a class action settlement against a large Eastern Massachusetts home health care company (who we are not permitted to name here), and we also recently filed a putative class action against a company called Right at Home, also here in Massachusetts.
We are currently investigating BAYADA. Feel free to contact us if you have worked for Bayada within the past three years.
Home health care workers must be paid their regular hourly rate for travel between client sites. They must also be reimbursed for expenses (i.e. the federal mileage rate) if they use their own vehicles for that travel.
Employers have the duty under state and federal law to keep accurate records of all travel time. Contact us if you were employed by a Massachusetts home health care company within the past three years and were not paid for your travel time between client sites.
