Department Of Labor Delays Overtime Rule

The U.S. Department of Labor has recently announced that it’s delaying the enforcement of the rule change that would have started a minimum wage and overtime obligation starting January 1, 2015 for personal care home care workers’ employers. The delay also affects the rule change on live-in domestic services. The Department of Labor has maintained the effective date of the rule as January 1, 2015, but is delaying any enforcement of the rule for six months, January 1 to June 30,  2015. After this period, the Department of Labor will use its discretion in enforcement, taking into consideration whether affected parties, particularly state programs such as Medicaid are undertaking efforts to bring about eventual compliance. The action does not affect states where the overtime exemptions have already been eliminated or modified under state law.
