The Department of Labor (DOL) published a Final Rule on October 1, 2013 extending minimum wage and overtime pay protections under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) to most home care workers (who may have job titles such as home health aide or personal care assistant) who provide essential assistance to people with disabilities and older adults. On August 21, 2015, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit issued a decision upholding the Final Rule. On Friday, September 18th from 2:00-3:00pm Eastern Time, senior leadership from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division and Office of the Solicitor will hold a webinar to discuss the Home Care Final Rule. Presenters will provide an overview of the Final Rule as well as the Department’s guidance regarding joint employment in domestic service employment under the FLSA and the application of the FLSA to shared living programs. Our comments will address questions we have received from states, including about the home care litigation.

U.S. Court of Appeals Unanimously Upholds DOL Home Care Rule
|Thank you for your engagement with the Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division regarding the Home Care Final Rule.On Friday, August 21, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia issued a unanimous decision upholding the Home Care Final Rule. DOL issued the statement below, which is available on our website at http://www.dol.gov/whd/homecare/litigation.htm
This site will be updated with any changes related to litigation, so please check back for updates.
Today’s decision from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia is vital to nearly two million home care workers, who will now qualify for minimum wage and overtime protections. The decision confirms this rule is legally sound. And just as important, the rule is the right thing to do — both for employees, whose demanding work merits these fundamental wage guarantees, and for recipients of services, who deserve a stable and professional workforce allowing them to remain in their homes and communities.
The DOL has led an unprecedented implementation program to help employers prepare for compliance, including offering an extensive and individualized technical assistance program, providing a 15-month period before the effective date to aid compliance, and adopting a time-limited non-enforcement policy. DOL has repeatedly encouraged states and other employers to take the necessary steps toward implementation. The Department continues to stand ready to provide technical assistance to states and other entities as they implement the Final Rule.
