A class action complaint was filed on behalf of about 1,000 terminated Univita Health employees Sunday in Delaware District Court.

The Miramar-based home health care company allegedly terminated the employees on July 28, the day the company abruptly lost all of its HMO contracts to provide products and services to Medicaid patients in Florida.

The lead plaintiff in the case is . . . a former employee at Univita's 15800 S.W. 25th St. facility in Miramar. He was one of about 1,000 employees who worked at or reported to the facility who received a termination letter on July 28 stating that they were terminated that day, according to the complaint.

The problem is that the employees were not provided the 60 days' advanced written notice of their termination, according to the complaint.

The complaint seeks to recover 60 days' worth wages and benefits for the terminated employees, as required by the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act.

New York-based Outten & Golden LLP and Delaware-based Loizides, P.A. filed the complaint on behalf of the plaintiffs.

Univita was previously based in Minnesota, but moved to South Florida in 2014.
