Manor at Susquehanna Village

Manor at Susquehanna Village


In this class action lawsuit, we represent a former employee at the Manor at Susquehanna Village, a nursing home located in Millersburg, PA. The lawsuit is going forward in the United States District Court in Scranton, PA. The lawsuit alleges that, in September 2017, the nursing home improperly eliminated many hours of unused leave time accumulated by our client and other nursing home employees. In the lawsuit, Ms. Knapp claims that she and similar employees are entitled to monetary compensation for all eliminated leave hours under the following legal theories: breach of contract; Pennsylvania Wage Payment and Collection Law (“WPCL”), 43 P.S. §§ 260.1, et seq.; promissory estoppel; and unjust enrichment.

The Judge has issued an order permitting the lawsuit to go forward on behalf of a 61-member "class" of nursing home employees. The nursing home denies liability and has filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit. The Court has not yet decided who will win the lawsuit.
