PHILADELPHIA - A home health aide is suing Sweet Home Healthcare LLC, citing alleged unpaid wages, violation of applicable minimum wage law and violation of workers' compensation acts.
Davita Young filed a complaint April 11 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania alleging the employer failed to properly compensate the plaintiff for her work.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges she sustained damages from being denied overtime wages. Young holds Sweet Home Healthcare responsible because it allegedly refused to pay the plaintiff overtime wages despite plaintiff's demands and despite the fact she worked weeks of more than 40 hours.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks overtime wages, liquidated damages, court costs and any further relief this court grants.
She is represented by Sidney L. Gold of Sidney L. Gold & Associates PC in Philadelphia.
