Federal Court Strikes Down New Overtime Rule

The U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia invalidated a proposed new U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) overtime rule slated to take effect on January 1, 2015. NAHC spokespeople have stated that this decision is a “huge victory for patients and their families who will be able to continue receiving home care services without interruption.” The decision is also a victory for caregivers “who will continue to be protected instead of being forced to work only part time” and agencies “that serve patients and employ caregivers.” As of yet, the DOL has not announced whether it will appeal this decision.
