The US Department of Labor has just released Paying Minimum Wage and Overtime to Home Care Workers: A Guide for Consumers and their Families to the Fair Labor Standards Act, a new resource for participants and families that covers the changes made by the FLSA Home Care Rule.
The guide can be found here: http://www.dol.gov/whd/homecare/homecare_guide.pdf
The guide includes information on the companionship exemption, live-in exemption, and joint employment. It also has helpful information on minimum wage, overtime, and compensable travel time under the FLSA.
