Detroit-based Henry Ford Health System enforces a Professional Appearance Standards Policy that requires most employees to report for work in “clean,” “neat,” and “pressed” uniforms. For most hourly health-care workers, this means working two to three extra hours per week, at home, washing and ironing scrubs – without wage and overtime compensation.
These sorts of “uniform maintenance” policies have come under scrutiny lately and are the subject of a number of Fair Labor Standards Act lawsuits pending around the United States.
If you or a friend or family member worked for Henry Ford Health System anytime in the last three years, we would like to talk to you. Please contact us to discuss your situation.
The relevant jobs include all full-time hourly positions with direct patient care responsibilities, including: Anesthesia Technician, Cardiac Technician, CAT Scan Technologist, Nurse (LPN, RN, etc.), Nurse’s Aide (CGNA, CNA, GNA, STNA, etc.), Hospitality Aide, Interventional Technologist, LPN, Mammographer, Medical Assistant, MRI Technologist, Physical Therapist, Respiratory Technician, Restorative Aide, and Ultrasound Technologist.
