...the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia vacated the U.S. Department of Labor's new rule that purported to narrow the definition of "companionship services" which exempted home healthcare employees from from receiving overtime pay under the Fair Labor Standards Act. The court ruled that "Limiting that care to only 20% of a worker's total hours defies logic, and Congressional intent."
Now employees can start using accrued time up to 40 hours of work per year.
