Judge Certifies Class of Home Healthcare Workers for Overtime Law Violations

August 1, 2023.  Judge Robert J. Colville issued a Memorandum Opinion in Wofford v. Seba Abode, Inc., d/b/a Brightstar Care, et al. (W.D. Pa. 2:20-cv-00084-RJC).  Judge Colville’s Order certified a class of home healthcare workers in this wage and hour lawsuit claiming violations of federal and state law. Plaintiffs claimed Defendants illegally reduced their hourly pay rates when they regularly worked more than 40 hours a week to avoid paying time-and-a-half their original hourly pay rates. 

Judge Colville also appointed Edward J. Feinstein and Ruairi McDonnell of Feinstein Doyle Payne & Kravec, LLC and Joseph J. Pass, Joseph S. Pass, and Steven E. Winslow of Jubilerer Pass & Interieri, P.C. as class counsel.
