Woman claims Caring Matters Home Care violated her FMLA rights

By Louie Torres | May 11, 2017

PHILADELPHIA — A former home health aide is suing Caring Matters Home Care, citing alleged unpaid wages, violation of the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and violation of Workers' Compensation acts.

Taysha Pastor filed a complaint on April 26 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania alleging that the Lancaster-based employer failed to honor her rights to FMLA.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she was damaged from being terminated from employment for a dispute arising from a leave of absence. The plaintiff holds Caring Matters Home Care responsible because the defendant allegedly terminated plaintiff's employment due to her request to be paid for a training examination that she completed while on FMLA leave.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks punitive damages, other damages, court costs and any further relief this court grants. She is represented by Manali Arora of Swartz Swidler LLC in Cherry Hill, New Jersey.
