Private providers of services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) face an array of compliance requirements and concerns related to federal wage and hour regulations. While the Fair Labor Standards Act did not change during the COVID-19 pandemic, operating under federal, state and local public health emergency declarations did usher in unique work circumstances.
With the public health emergency (PHE) declaration anticipated to end May 11, providers are now faced with unwinding from emergency flexibilities and funding which may interact with wage and hour laws. Through the unwinding, it is critical that providers have a clear understanding of when to exclude and include increases from overtime pay calculations and remain in compliance when discontinuing the use of premiums.
This webinar will provide participants with a better understanding of the Fair Labor Standards Act, with emphasis on emerging topics from the unwinding of the PHE.
