Posted Oct. 30, 2014 | Leaders of the Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities (CCD) recently met with officials from the U.S. Department of Labor to discuss the Fair Labor Standards Act regulation as it applies to home care workers, including their recent enforcement delay (see October 13 In Brief) and state action to comply with the rule in their Medicaid programs. For resources on the rule, see the Department’s recently updated resource page. Resources include new guidance in response to questions about how the Rule impacts shared living programs and joint employment. Several disability groups have also partnered to develop a Fact Sheet and specific Action Steps for states advocates to preserve Medicaid services, particularly self-directed programs.
