Despite federal move, California home-care workers still will get overtime pay
San Francisco Business Times

The Obama administration plans to put off enforcement of a new rule providing minimum-wage and overtime protections for home-care workers until July 1. But the move won’t affect California workers, state officials say. The rule still takes effect on Jan. 1, but the federal labor officials said Tuesday they would not enforce it for six months. Beginning in July, they’ll “exercise discretion” in enforcement for another six months and consider good-faith efforts to come into compliance.
