The Department of Labor (DOL) is issuing Paying Minimum Wage and Overtime to Home Care Workers: A Guide for Consumers and their Families to the Fair Labor Standards Act. This user-friendly guide, developed with stakeholder input, explains who needs to follow the FLSA rules and how to follow them. The guide provides examples of situations involving hiring a home care worker directly, using a home care agency, and arranging care through a self-directed program.  It discusses paid providers who are family members of the consumer and who are live-in workers.

The guide is now available on our website at http://www.dol.gov/whd/homecare/homecare_guide.htm.
