Residential care advocacy group strongly condemns recently alleged labor law violations
(SACRAMENTO)—Joy DeLa Torre, Chairwoman of the Board of Directors of 6Beds, Inc., a senior and adult residential care advocacy group, today issued the following statement after reports that some facilities were allegedly engaging in wage fraud, including paying some workers less than $4 per hour:
The Board of Directors of 6Beds, Inc., our members and the entire small residential care community are shocked by the news of alleged wage fraud. Any bad actors in our industry taint our reputation and the dedicated work we are doing to care for those who cannot care for themselves.
6Beds Inc. does not condone any illegal activity. That’s why as an association of residential care facilities we are committed to reaching out and ensuring all members of our care community are aware of, understand and comply with all laws and regulations. We will be working with our state oversight agencies to ensure all our members are educated and in compliance so that they can remain focused on the work they do – providing quality care to countless California seniors and adults in need.
