Judge Throws Out Wage Rule for Home Health Workers

Department of Labor regulations that would have extended federal overtime and minimum wage pay to home health care workers for the elderly and disabled employed by third party businesses come January were thrown out by a federal district judge in D.C. on Monday. 
The decision sides with the Home Care Associates, the International Franchise Association (IFA) and the National Association for Home Care & Hospice, which argues in its suit against the Department of Labor that the rule would have a “destabilizing impact” on the entire home care industry and adversely affect access to home care services for millions of elderly people.
