Knowledgeable New York Employment Lawyers Provide Workplace Protections for Home Health Aid Workers that Deserve Overtime Wages


Aggressive wage and hour lawyers seek overtime and wage security for home healthcare workers

Home health care aides have traditionally been one of the classes of workers that are exempt from the federal overtime requirements law. As of January 1, 2015 the law has changed. Home health care aides are among the hardest working and most caring people in our nation’s workforce. You deserve fair compensation for the long, hard hours you put in to care for your patients. At the New York law offices of Hepworth, Gershbaum & Roth, PLLC, we devote ourselves to protecting the rights of employees.

Can businesses try to avoid paying home health aid workers overtime by making them independent contractors?

Home health aid workers have finally received the recognition that they deserve fair compensation for the difficult and strenuous tasks that they perform. Businesses are attempting to avoid paying home health aid workers the time and a half they deserve by giving them a 1099 tax form and considering them to be independent contractors, because independent contractors are not owed overtime.  Our wages and hour claims attorneys in New York offer you sound legal guidance to decide on the best course of action to get you the full wages that you deserve. The test about whether an employee is an independent contractor is an evaluation of how much direct control the business has over your work and how you perform your tasks.

What are you entitled to recover if you are a home healthcare worker that has not been paid in full for their overtime hours?

You have the right to take legal action if you are a home health aid worker and you have an employer that has refused to pay you the overtime wages that you have earned. Employees are owed overtime wages and have the right to recover monetary damages for working any more than 40 hours within a single work week.  The New York unpaid wage claims attorneys in our office are compassionate towards the struggle of home health aid workers and tough on the employers that are not paying them fairly. We aggressively litigate against businesses that behave badly by not paying full and fair wages. The types of damages we normally recover in these cases include:

- Attorneys fees
- Costs
- Back wages
- Double or treble damages based on the balance due
- Interest accumulated
