Maxim Healthcare Services Faces Overtime Class Action Lawsuit

- by

Cleveland, OH: An overtime class action lawsuit has been filed against Maxim Healthcare Services Inc, by Jasmine Lawrence, who was employed as a Home Health Aide by the defendant until October 2012.

In the lawsuit, Lawrence alleges that Maxim Healthcare Services Inc, violated, and continues to violate, the Ohio Minimum Fair Wage Standards Act (OMFWSA) because of its willful failure to compensate her and the class members at a rate not less than one and one-half times the regular rate of pay for work performed in excess of 40 hours in a workweek. Lawrence claims she regularly worked over 70 hours per week while employed by Maxim Healthcare and the majority of her time was spent performing general housekeeping duties as opposed to patient care.

Lawrence also alleges that she and the members of the putative class who are employed by the Defendant in Ohio are "employees"within the meaning of the OMFWSA.

Lawrence, the lead plaintiff in the employment class action, seeks to bring her claim for violation of the Fair labor Standards Act (FLSA) as a nation-wide collective action, and as a statewide class action based for violation of the OMFWSA.

Maxim Healthcare Services, Inc, is a Maryland corporation which, through hundreds of office locations nationwide, provides in-home personal care, management and/or treatment of a variety of conditions by nurses, therapists, medical social workers, and home health aides.

Lawrence and the class are represented by Ben Stewart of Stewart Law PLLC.

I worked as a flu clinic nurse from 2004-2009. Maxim required the nurses to pick up clinic supplies from the Greensboro, NC, office before the next day's clinic. Then when the clinic was over, we had to drive back to Greensboro and return all those supplies. They never paid us for the time we spent hauling supplies back and forth to clinics. Not one dime for our time or even gas mileage incentive. They did all the flu clinic nurses that way. Somebody should pull payroll records from 2004-current.
