Department of Labor Releases Guide for Consumers and Families on the Fair Labor Standards Act

April 07, 2016

The Department of Labor has developed a user-friendly guide entitled "Paying Minimum Wage and Overtime to Home Care Workers: A Guide for Consumers and their Families to the Fair Labor Standards Act." The guide explains who needs to follow the FLSA rules and how to follow them.  The guide provides examples of situations involving hiring a home care worker directly, using a home care agency, and arranging care through a self-directed program.  It discusses paid providers who are family members of the consumer and who are live-in workers. View the guide here.
