Traveling Overtime

Philadelphia, PA: (Nov-21-07) A class action lawsuit was filed against Total Health Home Care Corp., by its home health care workers, who alleged that they should have been paid for the time they spent traveling between clients. Records reveal that the lawsuit, filed in May 2006, was backed by the Service Employees International Union. It also claimed that workers were owed overtime when time spent traveling resulted in over 40 hours clocked in a week.

As part of a settlement reached, officials of the Havertown-based company stated that it will pay $2.2 million. The settlement is said to affect over 3,000 former and current nonsupervisory workers employed by the company from May 18, 2002, to March 17, 2007. Company sources stated that it was better to have reached a settlement, benefiting workers, rather than to have incurred the risks and costs of litigation. [YAHOO: TRAVELING OVERTIME]
