Class Action v. Helping Hands Company, Inc.

Counsel for the defendant asked Analysis Group to estimate damages in a class action dispute in which home health care workers claimed they were entitled to nearly $1 million in back pay for the time spent traveling between client locations. We designed and implemented a statistically valid sample of employee time records to estimate travel time. We explained at mediation that, although some employees, and in particular several named plaintiffs, incurred substantial travel time, the majority of employees were sufficiently compensated for their travel time. The case settled on terms favorable to our client.
