two female healthcare workers talking

Good Family Support Services Inc., a Philadelphia home health care agency, has paid more than $2.1 million to resolve allegations that it failed to provide overtime pay to 456 workers over two years, according to an announcement earlier this month from the U.S. Department of Labor.

The agency also allegedly failed to record the number of hours that two employees worked and did not record hourly rates, violating the Fair Labor Standards Act’s record-keeping requirements.

This case demonstrates our commitment to protecting and respecting vulnerable workers, in home healthcare and all low-wage industries,” said Jessica Looman, principal deputy administrator of the Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division “The U.S. Department of Labor is committed to protecting all workers’ wages and to ensuring a level-playing field for all employers.”
