In-Home Health Care Labor Antitrust
Lieff Cabraser is investigating reports that companies providing in-home health care services illegally agreed not to solicit or hire each other’s home health care workers. These alleged no-poach agreements reportedly suppressed the wages of in-home health care workers, including nurses, physical therapists, and home health aides. Home healthcare companies that are involved in the in-home care industry include Kindred at Home, Amedisys, LHC Group, Encompass Home Health and Hospice, AccentCare, Brookdale Senior Living Solutions, Bayada, Trinity Health at Home, and Elara Caring and Interim Healthcare.
Reports have surfaced that an unnamed company has sought leniency from prosecution with the U.S. Department of Justice in its criminal investigation into anticompetitive conduct in the in-home health care services industry.
