Defending the Elderly in Assisted Living Facilities

In some ways, assisted living facility residents have to rely on their care providers at least as much as nursing home residents rely on their caregivers. Because assisted living residents generally have greater mobility and mental cognizance, their needs can become more specialized and unique. This reliance on their caregiver place assisted living facility residents in a great degree of dependence on their caregivers.

In far too many cases, assisted living facility caregivers take advantage of vulnerability and reliance placed on them by the elderly residents in their care. If you or an elderly relative has suffered any form of elder abuse or exploitation at the hands of health care providers, contact us.

Trial Victory -- Fernandez & Lauby attorney, Brian Mankin recently prevailed at trial on an employee's individual unpaid wage claim in San Bernardino County Superior Court. The employee claimed that he was required to work more than 8 hours per day and/or 40 hours per week, but was only paid for 40 hours per week. He also claimed that he was given inaccurate wage statements. The employer claimed that it did not owe any additional wages. Mankin filed a lawsuit for failure to pay minimum wages and overtime wages, as well as failure to provide breaks and accurate wage statements. Following trial, the court awarded the employee his unpaid wages, interest and various penalties, plus the employer was required to pay approximately $60,000 in attorneys fees and costs to Fernandez & Lauby. If you were denied wages, misclassified, not given all required breaks or have any other concerns about your pay or working conditions, feel free to call, or email, the employment law team at Fernandez & Lauby for a free consultation. Most unpaid wage cases are handled by the firm on a contingency basis, meaning you don't pay unless you win.
