Workers in low-wage industries are often exploited by attempts to circumvent or ignore labor laws. One of these industries is home care, according to the complaint, whose workers in 2015 were specifically given the right to seek redress under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The employer of plaintiff Cassandra Jones, Good Shepherd Healthcare has more than one hundred home care workers in the state of Kentucky. According to the complaint, Jones attended patients in their homes to help them with their basic needs, including cooking and cleaning, and regularly worked more than forty hours per week. In fact, the complaint says, some weeks Jones worked as many as ninety hours—and yet was paid the same for every hour that she worked. In other words, the complaint claims that, in violation of the FLSA, the company did not pay its workers the overtime they were due.
