Tabor Community Partners

This class/collective lawsuit has been filed in the federal court in Philadelphia, PA on behalf of Case Managers employed by Tabor Community Partners. Case Managers are dedicated employees, who work hard to provide services to children and families in Philadelphia's foster care system. Case Managers carry heavy caseloads and work long hours. Unfortunately, during the time period relevant to this lawsuit, they have not received extra overtime pay for hours worked over 40 per week.

This lawsuit challenges Tabor's failure to pay overtime to Case Managers. In our opinion, the Case Manager position is the type of job that is not "exempt" from the federal and state overtime laws.

The lawsuit is in its early stages. Tabor has denied that it violated the law. The Judge has not decided who will win.
