Federal Appeals Court Reinstates New Federal Minimum Wage and Overtime Requirements for Home Health Care Workers Employed By Third-Party Employers

Ogletree Deakins • August 24, 2015
The United States Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit in Home Care Association of America v. Weil reinstated the U.S. Department of Labor’s regulations extending the federal minimum wage and overtime requirements for home health care workers employed by third-party employers. Today’s federal appeals court decision overturns a lower court decision that struck down the new regulation just before it was scheduled to go into effect at the beginning of 2015. The appeals court decision does not mean that the minimum wage and overtime requirements will go into effect immediately. The case will likely now return to the district court with instructions by the federal court of appeals for the court to issue a decision upholding the regulations unless there is further review of the case by either the full panel of the District of Columbia Circuit or the Supreme Court of the United States.

Court Vacates Imminent Bar To Third-Party Employer's Claiming Companionship/Live-In Domestic Exemptions
