Calif. Assisted Living Home Must Pay Shorted Workers $176K

A California assisted living home must pay more than $176,000 to some of its workers, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) announced Wednesday.

According to the DOL, Bordon Homes illegally capped overtime at 16 hours per pay period and refused to pay out any overtime to workers who worked more than that, in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.

The DOL previously conducted an investigation into the Union City-based care provider in 2016 and found that it owed workers more than $70,000 in back wages. The 2022 investigation yielded $176,000 in overtime wages for nine health care workers, and the DOL also slapped the company with nearly $7,000 in civil penalties for the repeat offense.
