Our clients were an elderly couple who hired an In-Home-Caregiving Agency to provide care to them in the home. Shortly after their death, the family discovered thousands of dollars in “gifts” the elderly couple had allegedly given to the caregivers. The case turned on the important fact that the agency had failed to conduct background checks on the employees, failed to train them and failed to supervise them. Even after evidence of the fraud was well known to management, all of the caregivers kept their jobs and none were disciplined. Result: $500,000.
