A case centering around Pennsylvania governor Tom Wolf’s 2015 executive order organizing home care workers went to the state Supreme Court this week, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
The court is expected to issue an opinion letter, though the timing of the letter is unclear.
Wolf’s executive order required home care workers that operate like independent contractors select a representative to meet with the state human services secretary on issues such as pay and benefits, according to a story from Pittsburgh’s NPR news station WESA. The order also provides workers’ contact information to other groups.
The Fairness Center contends the governor should have had legislative approval to make the change, according the WESA article.
