Issue Brief: FLSA in Self Direction: A Survey of Recent Department of Labor Guidance

This June 2016 issue brief surveys recent US Department of Labor (DOL) guidance on interpretations of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) pertaining to joint employment, minimum wage, overtime, and other key labor topics. While not all of the guidance surveyed is specific to home care, each piece of guidance nevertheless has important implications for Financial Management Services (FMS) providers and participant-employers in self-directed programs.
