Federal Wage and Hour for Home Care

Federal Wage and Hour for Home Care – Pending Updates

Home care was hit hard in 2015 and 2016 with the loss of the federal overtime pay exemption for caregivers, and then again in 2019 with increased minimum salary levels for exempt employees.  Employers now need to track and pay all hours worked and correctly pay overtime each workweek for their nonexempt caregivers. Understanding compliance requirements for this unique workforce can be daunting, including without limitation understanding the new white collar exemption rules, calculating overtime pay, and knowing when to pay for travel time, sleep time interruptions and mileage expense reimbursements. This comprehensive, 250+ page manual will be packed with  easy-to-understand explanations of the most relevant federal regulations, as well as examples and best practices written specifically for home care.

HIPAA Privacy & Security Compliance Resource Manual. This manual reflects the HITECH Act and the HIPAA regulation amendments as of 2013. It is based on Mr. Gilliland’s very popular previous HIPAA manuals and workshops. The manual leads the provider through development of its security, breach notification and security policies which reflect its own circumstances and organization.

The manual is in eight parts: (1) An Introduction which explains the HIPAA Privacy, Breach Notification and Security Rules; (2) Template Privacy & Security Policies which include breach notification policies; (3) Template Notices of Privacy Practices; (4) Template Privacy Forms; (5) Template Security Forms; (6) Template Security Procedure Forms; (7) Template Business Associate Forms; and (8) Copies of the HIPAA Regulations.

The templates contain Mr. Gilliland’s comments throughout to help you understand the requirements and options available. The manual includes a thumb drive with all of the template policies and forms in Word without his comments so retyping is kept to a minimum.

Purchasers receive a copyright license permitting the policies, notices and forms to be used by the purchaser and up to two affiliated entities in not more than two states.
