HRS Home Health Clinician Overtime Settlement Notes

  • Brown, et al. v. Health Resource Solutions, Inc., et al.
  • Case No. 16-cv-10667
  • Pending in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois

In November 2016, plaintiff Monique Brown filed this class action lawsuit against Health Resource Solutions alleging she and other Home Health Clinicians, including Registered Nurses, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, and Speech Therapists, were deprived of overtime wages in violation of federal and state wage laws.

The HRS class action lawsuit contends that company’s Home Health Clinicians should have been paid for overtime for the time they worked in excess of 40 hours per wee. The complaint was filed as a collective action under the Fair Labor Standards Act or FLSA and as a class action under the Illinois Minimum Wage Law.

HRS denies the claims in this lawsuit, denies it did anything wrong, and believes that it properly classified and compensated its Home Health Clinicians but agreed to settle the case for $900,000 to avoid further litigation. Complete details about the case and settlement are provided on the HRS Settlement website.

Class members who wish to object to or exclude themselves from the HRS Settlement must do so by April 2, 2018. Class members who wish to participate in the settlement must submit their claim form on or before April 2, 2018.

Illinois Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) Settlement Notes

  • Illinois v. Hitachi LTD, et al.
  • Case No. 12 CH 35266
  • Pending in the Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois

The State of Illinois brought this antitrust class action lawsuit against several manufacturers and suppliers of cathode ray tubes, claiming the companies conspired to fix and inflate prices of CRTs, resulting in overcharges to consumer who bought certain televisions and monitors containing CRTs.

A cathode ray tube (CRT) is a piece of technology used as screens in televisions and computer monitors. CRTs were the main technology used in these devices prior to LCD, Plasma, and LED displays.

According the lawsuit, the alleged actions of Hitachi, LG,  Philips, Samsung, Panasonic, and Toshiba resulted in consumers paying much higher prices for CRTs than they should have.

As of now, the state of Illinois has settled claims with Hitachi,  LG,  Philips, and Samsung. However, claims are still pending with Panasonic and Toshiba.

The four settling defendants deny these allegations or that indirect purchasers incurred any overcharge but agreed to settle to avoid further litigation.
