Home Healthcare Agency Must Pay $2.3 Million in Back Wages

400 home healthcare workers had overtime wages withheld.

The Department of Labor has ordered a Philadelphia home healthcare agency to pay more than $2.3 million in back wages, returning withheld overtime payments to their 400 home healthcare employees. The Wage and Hour Division of the Labor Department conducted investigations into the agency and found that they did not separate straight time from overtime in their records and did not pay the time-and-a-half required for overtime pay.

“Home healthcare workers provide essential services to people who depend greatly on their care, and these workers deserve to be fairly and fully compensated,” said Principal Deputy Wage and Hour Administrator Jessica Looman. “The Wage and Hour Division will vigorously protect the workplace rights and dignity of these workers and ensure employers fulfill their obligation to comply with federal labor laws.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Administrator Looman to seek God’s discernment as she fills her role in the Wage and Hour Division.
  • For the president and his advisors as they determine who to nominate to the position of Secretary of Labor.
