Federal Fair Labor Standards Effective January 1, 2015

The Department of Labor’s Final Rule, effective January 1, 2015, brings important minimum wage and overtime protection to workers who enable individuals with disabilities and the elderly to continue to live independently in their homes. The Final Rule contains significant changes from the prior regulations, including (1) the tasks that comprise “companionship services” are more clearly defined; and (2) the exemptions for companionship services and live-in domestic service employees are limited to the individual, family, or household using the services; and (3) the recordkeeping requirements for employers of live-in domestic service employees are revised.
