Public Partnerships, LLC Update

We are pleased to report that on December 7, 2020, the Third Circuit Court of Appeals reversed the lower court’s decision that concluded that PPL was not the employer of direct care workers and thus did not have to pay overtime wages. The Court reasoned that because PPL establishes rules for direct care workers, sets their working conditions, and maintains their employment records, there is a fact question that a jury must decide whether PPL is an employer of direct care workers. This ruling means that the case is going back to the federal district court and will be heading toward trial.

Please check back for more information as our case moves forward, and make sure to update our firm with any changes of contact information.
