Case Description: 

In this combined class action and collective action lawsuit, our clients are drivers providing non-emergency medical transportation services in the District of Columbia. The plaintiffs allege that Medical Transportation Management, Inc. (MTM) failed to pay them legally required wages. Pursuant to contracts with the District, MTM is responsible for providing non-emergency medical transportation services to Medicaid recipients. As a contractor with the District, MTM is obligated to pay the drivers not only the minimum wage but also the D.C. living wage. Instead, MTM typically paid the drivers either flat weekly rates or trip rates that, when divided by the number of hours worked, resulted in an effective hourly wage falling below the required minimum wage and living wage rates and failed to include a premium rate for overtime.
