IHSS denying overtime benefits to in-home health service workers


I read in today’s paper that the state of California, which employs over 400,000 people throughout the state as in-home health services workers, has refused to provide overtime pay for in-home healthcare services workers.

I find that interesting in that I represent an in-home health services worker who has a workers’ compensation claim who has a workers’ compensation claim for having suffered an injury while providing services to the in-home services recipient.  My client, was accompanying the in-home health recipient to the bank.

In-home health services has denied the claim arguing that taking someone to the bank, though notable, was not within the course and scope of the in-home health services contract.  I disagree!  And the courts may have to decide this issue.  As this is a newer claim, you will have to stay posted to see how it turns out.

Here at the Law Offices of Sef Krell we fight the good fight for injured workers whose claims are denied.
