Along with Bohrer Brady, LLC, Kimble Law has filed suit on behalf of home health care workers at A-1 Preferred Sources and related entities in the Columbus, Ohio area. The plaintiff seeks to represent a class of similarly situated home health care workers who she alleges were denied overtime wages when they worked in excess of 40 hours per week.
As we have discussed on this blog before, as of January 2015, the U.S. Department of Labor prohibits third-party employers from denying overtime wages by relying on the “companionship” exemption of the Fair Labor Standards Act. As a result, the plaintiff alleges that caregivers who work at A-1 are entitled to time and one-half their regular hourly rate for hours worked in excess of 40 per workweek.
