Georgia Supreme Court Hears Case for In-Home Care Provider Wages
In-home care providers hired by Southern Home Care Services have recently brought a case to the Georgia Supreme Court arguing the right to earn minimum wage. Atlanta trial lawyer Geoffrey Pope of Pope & Howard, P.C. is defending the in-home care employees, stating that they are not considered to be “domestic employees” based off of the Georgia Department of Labor’s definition.
If the Georgia Supreme Court remains consistent with their definition, the in-home care providers will not be exempt from their right to earn Georgia’s set minimum wage of $5.15 per hour. Read more about the case for Pope & Howard here.
