The long awaited decision from the Federal Appeals Court came out yesterday, Friday 21st August. The 3-judge panel’s decision makes way for the end of overtime exemption in the homecare industry.
Home care workers were exempt from overtime pay since the mid-1970s. This decision might only be a step in a longer legal challenge between the home care industry and the Obama administration.

No word yet on when this decision will have to be implemented by home care agencies so stay tuned!
