Attention Providers: Participate Today in a Companionship Services Overtime Survey

As we announced yesterday, the Department of Labor released a proposed rule that would essentially eliminate the “companionship services” exemption from the minimum wage and overtime compensation requirements. Home care providers that used the exemption with personal care aides, home care aides and home health aides would no longer have that option.

Providers are encouraged to take part in a nationwide survey conducted by the National Association for Home Care & Hospice, regardless as to whether you use the exemption. Click here to complete the survey.

The survey should only take a few minutes with the information usually readily available. If your agency does not have actual data for some questions, please estimate.

The survey will be open until December 30.
