DOL Announces New Webinar Dates on Final Rule, “Application of Fair Labor Standards to Domestic Service”

The Department of Labor (DOL) has announced new dates for its webinars on the new final rule on the “Application of Fair Labor Standards to Domestic Service.” The rule extends the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) minimum wage and overtime protections to most direct support professionals by narrowing exemptions for companionship service and live-in domestic service. The final rule will take effect January 1, 2015. DOL has planned five webinars on the final rule, which were postponed due to the government shutdown.
