San Diego Hospice sued for mass firings without notice

San Diego Hospice & Palliative Care Corp. was the target of a class lawsuit filed at the end of last week on behalf of 360 workers who were fired without 60 days' notice required by federal and state labor law.

The not-for-profit provider of home health-care services filed for Chapter 11 reorganization on Feb. 4 in San Diego after the patient census fell by half and a Medicare investigation cut off reimbursement.

San Diego Hospice transferred 450 patients to Scripps Health, a not-for-profit San Diego health care provider.

The case is In re San Diego Hospice & Palliative Care Corp., 13-bk-01179, U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Southern District of California (San Diego).
