Department of Labor letter to governors, Sept. 2015

September 2, 2015

U.S. Department of Labor

A letter from U.S. Department of Labor Secretary Thomas Perez advising governors to prepare for the implementation of a federal rule change extending minimum-wage and overtime protections to home care workers. The Perez letter was sent following an August 2015 federal appeals court ruling which found that the DOL had not overreached its authority in promulgating the rule change in 2013.
