MAXIM Heathcare Services, Inc.

California Recruiter Overtime Claims

Fibich Hampton represents current and former California employees of Maxim Healthcare Services, Inc. who worked as Healthcare Recruiters and/or Staffing Recruiters are challenging MAXIM’s policies of misclassifying healthcare recruiters and paying them a salary without overtime compensation.  These individuals are seeking thousands of dollars of back wages for time spent working in excess of 40 hours a week, including time spent working on call, attending flu clinics, working at home and while making sales calls. It doesn’t matter if you did staffing recruiting, homecare or both, if you worked for Maxim as a salaried recruiter, you may be owed money damages.

The subject of the Healthcare Recruiters’ lawsuit against MAXIM rests on the company’s frequent misclassification of healthcare recruiters.  This misclassification led to the company’s refusal to pay recruiters overtime compensation, or provide off-duty meal periods as required by California law. 

MAXIM’s misclassification policy was in effect for at least four years prior to the filing of this action and the company knowingly allowed the healthcare recruiters to work overtime hours without paying overtime compensation.  MAXIM failed to pay overtime compensation upon termination of a healthcare recruiter, and the company also failed to provide an itemized wage statement showing accurate hours worked and accurate pay rates.  MAXIM was required to keep accurate time records, but the company did not comply with the state or federal laws concerning recordkeeping and overtime.

To be classified as exempt, an employee of that stature regularly exercises discretion and independent judgment over matters of significance; performs specialized or technical work under only general supervision; determines or significantly influences the hiring, firing, disciplining, or promoting of others.   In this case MAXIM Healthcare Recruiters spent the vast majority of their time on non-exempt tasks such as recruiting and scheduling nurses.

In California, Plaintiffs are seeking certification of a class of all persons who were, are, or will be employed by Maxim Healthcare Services, Inc. in the State of California as a Homecare Recruiter, Staffing Recruiter or any other type of recruiter, or in any job position whose title includes the word "Recruiter”.
