Wage Theft - Cerebral Palsy of Massachusetts

Brian Sparks filed this request with the Attorney General's Office of Massachusetts.
Est. Completion None
Payment Required


From: Brian Sparks

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Massachusetts Public Records Law, M.G.L. c.66, ยง10, I hereby request the following records:

The content of all wage theft complaints involving the organization Cerebral Palsy of Massachusetts, dated from 1 January 2015 to the present.

Cerebral Palsy of Massachusetts often does not act as the direct employer of its Personal Care Assistants (PCAs), and many complaints involving Cerebral Palsy of Massachusetts are logged with your office under the name of the person under care of the PCA instead of the name of the agency.

If for that reason this request seems impossible or particularly burdensome to fulfill, please let me know.

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as we believe this request is in the public interest, as suggested but not stipulated by the recommendations of the Massachusetts Supervisor of Public Records. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

I expect the request to be filled in an accessible format, including for screen readers, which provide text-to-speech for persons unable to read print. Files that are not accessible to screen readers include, for example, .pdf image files as well as physical documents.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 calendar days, as the statute requires.
