The NCEA has recently become aware of potentially concerning cases with a similar fact pattern:
Older adults retain caregivers. The caregivers work their regular shifts, then request to sleep at their client’s home overnight to avoid traffic or a long drive home. No caregiving services are provided during the night. After the caregivers leave their employment, they retain attorneys to sue their former clients and/or their family members for back pay or overtime compensation for nighttime caregiving. This may be a means to financially exploit older people.
Have you heard of these types of cases and, if so, could you share the relevant facts?
