HR Fact Friday: New DOL Rule Gives FLSA Protections to Home Care Workers

Filed under: FLSA — Tags: , , , 6:00 am

DOL has published a new rule that provides the protections (e.g. minimum wage and overtime pay) of the FLSA to home care workers such as home health aides, certified nursing assistants, and personal care aides. DOL accomplished this by redefining and narrowing the “companionship” FLSA exemption to largely exclude these types of employees and by only allowing the “live-in” exemption to be claimed by the individual or household and not by third party employer, such as home care agencies.
