Home Care Rule

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) Home Care Final Rule has important implications for self-direction. Our team produced the FLSA Home Care Final Rule Toolkit, and we continue to provide essential technical assistance and training on FLSA compliance in self-direction. Topics could include:

  • Home Care Rule: the basics
  • The Home Care Rule: how can my program best comply given our structure?
  • The companionship exemption
  • The live-in exemption
  • Understanding joint employment
  • Overtime and paid travel requirements
  • Medicaid billing and reimbursement implications and approaches
  • Understanding Department of Labor guidance on shared living
