California residential care facilities have a tough job maintaining and caring for their residents 24/7. But that doesn’t preclude companies from making sure their employees are compensated accordingly along with meal and rest breaks. This specific California residential care facility paid over 7 million for their incorrect employment practices.
“Adult care facilities require caregivers to work around the clock, making workers in this industry vulnerable to wage theft and exploitation,” said Labor Commissioner Julie A. Su. “We encourage other residential caregivers to speak up and report wage theft if they are not paid for the work they do.”
