The Department of Labor has recently published three Notice of Proposed Rulemaking that may be of interest to nursing centers, assisted living communities, and ID/DD providers:
  1. Overtime Threshold, comments due May 21: proposes several changes related to overtime, including raising the overtime threshold for exempt employees. https://www.dol.gov/whd/overtime2019/
  2. Regular Rate Requirements, comments due May 28: proposes to define what forms of payment employers include and exclude in the “time and one-half” calculation when determining workers’ overtime rates. https://www.dol.gov/whd/overtime/regularrate2019.htm 
  3. Joint Employer Status, comment date not announced but likely early June: proposes to revise and clarify the responsibilities of employers and joint employers to employees in joint employer arrangements. https://www.dol.gov/whd/flsa/jointemployment2019/
