The Home Care Industry took a beating this year from lawmakers, and significant changes to the labor laws and regulations in California begin going into effect January 1, 2014. Every home care agency in the state must change its way of doing business to be compliant and remain in operation. Are you prepared to deal with:
- Overtime requirements of AB 241, the Domestic Workers' Bill of Rights - effective January 1, 2014
- Minimum Wage increases under AB 10 - effective July 1, 2014 (Don't think this one affects you? Think again!)
- Elimination of the FLSA Companionship Services Exemption - effective January 1, 2015
- State Licensure for non-medical home care companies through AB 1217 - effective January 1, 2016
In combination, these new laws have potentially devastating consequences for home care agencies. Those who are uninformed or ill-prepared will simply not survive.
