The U.S. Department of Labor, DOL, Division of Wage and Hour has issued the “DOL Homecare guide March 2016” for families using services covered by the DOL minimum wage and overtime rule.
For many families on the CDC+ waiver, this brochure will provide guidance on your responsibilities under the new rule.
The definition of who is exempt from paying minimum wage and overtime has been narrowed. If the person providing personal supports, respite or companion (Life Skills Development 1) services is administering medications, spending time assisting in bathing or feeding or doing household chores, then you should read this brochure to more fully understand if you now have additional responsibilities.
