PHILADELPHIA - Two home health aides have filed a class action lawsuit against All American Home Care LLC, All American Hospice Care LLC and Michael Spivak, the company's president, citing alleged unpaid wages and violation of workers' compensation acts.
Lavette Cooper and Ivory Cooper filed a complaint on behalf of themselves and all others similarly situated on April 6 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, alleging the defendants refused to adequately compensate the plaintiffs for their work.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege they worked in excess of 40 hours per week but were only paid at a regular hourly rate. The plaintiffs hold the defendants responsible because they allegedly failed to pay their employees one-and-one-half-time wages for hours worked exceeding 40 hours per week.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek injunction against the defendant, unpaid wages, liquidated and/or punitive damages, interest, court costs and any further relief the court grants.
They are represented by Marc P. Weingarten and Andrew P. Bell of Locks Law Firm in Philadelphia.
