One of the industries were employees are misclassified as salaried employees is in the Home Health Care industry. Employers often try to pay a salary to home health care workers to avoid payroll difficulties that are inherent in the type of services provided by home health care workers. Home health care workers do not necessarily work the traditional 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. because the patients they serve need assistance throughout the whole day. If you work in the home health care industry and you are not making at least $7.25 per hour and one and one half your regular rate of pay for hours worked over 40 hours a workweek, you may have a claim!
Home health care workers honorably provide services to the most vulnerable members of our society. Do not let your employer exploit your labor and degrade your work, contact our team of wage and hour lawyers at the Law Offices of Bryan Yaldou today.
