The U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia on New Year’s Eve issued a temporary restraining order to temporarily stop the U.S. Department of Labor from implementing a rule that would have made many live-in home health care aides eligible for overtime pay.

The rule was to have gone into effect Jan. 1.

A coalition of home health care providers is seeking an injunction that would prevent the rule from taking effect at all.

The court is expected to rule on the injunction by Jan. 14.

Advice: If your organization provides home health services, consult your attorney right away to determine if the ruling affects your operations.
