Affo v. Granite Bay Care

Thursday, January 3rd, 2013 at 2:53 pm

This is a federal court suit for group of caregivers who take care of disabled people in a homelike setting. The caregivers of Granite Bay Care worked 80 hours per week, and more, and yet were denied overtime pay. The company invented a deceptive scheme of part salary and part hourly pay. It calls the employees “Independent Contractors” and refuses to pay them time and a half for the approximately sixteen hours per day that they work overtime (or eight overtime hours per day if the “sleep” time is not counted.) The federal court will soon decide the case.
