SHERMAN – A former home health aide alleges he was not paid for additional hours he worked while employed by a Plano company.
Ryan Kaiser, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, filed a complaint on May 10 in the Sherman District of the Eastern District of Texas against Revival Home Healthcare Services Inc. and Sylvester C. Udeze alleging that they violated the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that during his employment with the defendants from February 2016 to November 2017, he routinely worked for more than 40 hours per week without receiving overtime premium for all hours worked in excess of 40 hours a week.
The plaintiff holds Revival Home Healthcare Services Inc. and Udeze responsible because the defendants allegedly failed and refused to compensate their home health aides at a rate of at least one-and-one-half times their regular hourly rate for all their overtime hours.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks all unpaid premium overtime wages, liquidated damages, costs, expenses and attorneys’ fees, prejudgment and post-judgment interest and all other relief that is just and proper. He is represented by Corinna Chandler of Chandler Law PC in Dallas.
