Department of Labor Offers Guidance on FLSA and Shared Living Arrangements

The Department of Labor recently posted a Final Rule that changes how the Fair Labor Standards Act is interpreted for domestic service.  Of special interest is how the Rule impacts shared living programs under Medicaid.

The Department of Labor has also created guidance to assist stakeholders in determining whether an entity paying a direct care worker through a shared living arrangement is required to comply with the FLSA’s minimum wage and overtime requirements. The guidance also describes how certain FLSA principles apply to shared living arrangements. 

These changes become effective January 1, 2015.
