24-Hour Home Care Workers Must Be Paid For All 24 Hours (Appellate Division, First Department, New York Supreme Court)

FordHarrison LLP • April 14, 2017
Executive Summary. Tuesday, April 11, 2017, the First Department, Appellate Division of the NYS Supreme Court held that 24-hour case home care workers must be paid for all 24 hours if they are “nonresidential,” that is, they do not exclusively reside in the patient’s home. Tokhtaman v. Human Care, LLC (2017 NY Slip Op 02759). This is the first time an appellate-level court in New York has ruled this way. The First Department covers New York (i.e., Manhattan) and Bronx counties. A case dealing with the same issue, Andryeyeva v. New York Health Care, Inc. (Index No. 14309/2011 (Queens Cty.)) is currently on appeal in the Second Department, Appellate Division. The Second Department covers the counties of Richmond, Kings, Queens, Nassau, Suffolk, Westchester, Dutchess, Orange, Rockland, and Putnam. Oral argument in that case was held in January of this year. Whatever the outcome, the NY Court of Appeals may ultimately be asked to rule on this issue.
