Home Health Care Workers May Soon Be Entitled To Overtime (And At Least Minimum Wage)

by | Mar 28, 2012 | News, Wage and Overtime Law

In-home health care workers are currently exempt from the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”). This means that they are not entitled to receive at least a minimum wage or overtime pay. But things may be changing. In December of 2011, the Obama administration announced that it wanted to expand the overtime and minimum wage protections to home health care workers. For Florida, this would impact approximately 31,000 home health aides.

The FairLaw Firm is carefully monitoring the status of the proposed changes. The Department of Labor has issued its statement on the extent of the proposed changes. We are happy to discuss the impact of the proposed changes and hope to be positioned to assist home health care workers if and when the changes are implemented.

We have a free online case evaluation form which can be submitted confidentially, while we can easily be contacted by phone or email.
