As you may recall we had issued a notice last year regarding a PCA overtime policy change that was implemented and later reversed through the legal system. Recently the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)rule changes were upheld in appeals court and the subsequent appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court was denied. So we are writing once again to officially notify our Clients and PCAs of the upcoming Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) rule changes regarding PCA overtime. For decades the Minnesota Labor Laws required overtime pay for PCAs who work more than 48 hours per week. The Federal law has always been 40 hours but exemptions allowed state law to override the federal rules. Effective the week of Nov. 12, 2015 the U.S. Department of Labor will enact the “Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) Final Rule” which will require overtime pay for employees who work more than 40 hours in a 7-day period. [ View Full Official Notice ]
