Home Care Final Rule Implementation Webinar for NCIL Members

Wednesday, September 30; 1:00-2:00 p.m. Eastern

The Department of Labor (DOL) published a Final Rule on October 1, 2013 extending minimum wage and overtime pay protections under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) to most home care workers (who may have job titles such as home health aide or personal care assistant) who provide essential assistance to people with disabilities and seniors in their homes. On August 21, 2015, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit issued a decision upholding the Final Rule.

On Wednesday, September 30th from 1:00-2:00 p.m. Eastern Time, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division will hold a webinar for members of the National Council on Independent Living. Presenters will provide an overview of the Final Rule as well as the Department’s guidance regarding joint employment in domestic service employment under the FLSA.

Register online. Once you register, you will receive an email with the information you need to access the webinar.

Questions: There will be a question and answer period after DOL’s presentation. If you would like to submit a question(s) in advance, please email it to at your earliest convenience. During the webinar, we will respond to as many questions as possible.
