Sommers Schwartz filed a wage-theft lawsuit against Maxim Healthcare Services, Inc. on behalf of all hourly in-home health care employees who were not paid overtime under the Fair Labor Standards Act and similar state laws. The matter is pending in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio.
On October 9, 2013, the Court granted nationwide conditional certification for all hourly in-home health care employees who worked for Maxim in the past three years. As a result, it is estimated that over 92,000 current and former in-home health care workers will be given an opportunity to join the case.
As reported in a previous post, the firm brought another lawsuit against Maxim for allegedly failing to pay overtime to its homecare recruiters. The U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia recently granted nationwide conditional certification for that case as well.
