Caregivers and home health aides often work more than 40 hour work per week but are not paid overtime pay by their employer. For certain caregivers, this is a violation of federal overtime pay laws.
The Companionship Services Exemption was eliminated by the United States Department of Labor in connection with workers who work for third parties, such as home healthcare companies and hospice companies. This means that caregivers who work for an agency or company are eligible for overtime pay. Caregivers employed directly by the patient or family are not eligible for overtime pay.
Lawsuits are being filed to recover unpaid wages for workers who are being paid both on an hourly basis and for those who receive a salary. Your eligibility to qualify for overtime pay depends on a number of factors, including whether your employer has classified your job title as exempt under the Companionship Services Exemption.
