Over a hundred home attendants from various NYC home care agencies and dozens of supporters convened at a workers’ center in Lower Manhattan Wednesday to celebrate several precedent-setting decisions issued in the past few weeks by the New York State Supreme Court Appellate Division. The decisions* make the law clear: it is illegal for employers to pay only 12 hours for 24-hour shifts.
