7:37AM MDT: – Travis Lingenfelter-Ask A Local Expert-Pointe Frontier- New Rule Would Increase Home Health Care Pay and Benefits… The United States Department of Labor (DOL) is expected to finalize a rule, modifying a current exemption that excludes home health care workers from Federal wage and overtime requirements. The Fair Labor Standards Act currently exempts “companionship services” from Federal wage and overtime laws. The new rule would limit this exemption by more clearly defining the tasks that could be performed by an exempt companion and no longer allowing third party employers, such as home health agencies, to claim the exemption. “Due to significant changes in the home health care industry over the last 35 years, workers who today provide in-home care to individuals are performing duties and working in circumstances that were not envisioned when the companionship services regulations were promulgated,” the proposed rule says.
