A United States District Court in New York ruled last Monday that the Department of Labor used too broad a definition of “healthcare provider” in its rule allowing exemptions from the expanded leave provisions of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA). Although not expressly stated, the ruling may preclude home health and home care providers from being considered exempt from the FFCRA requirements.  The ruling has generated a huge amount of uncertainty for home care providers, many of whom believed they were exempt based on the definition in the DOL’s rule.

To help member agencies understand the implications of the court ruling for employers in Massachusetts, the Alliance will host a free members-only webinar this coming Friday, August 14, 10:00 – 11:00 a.m.  Robert Brooks, an employment law attorney and Partner with Verrill, will review the specifics of the court ruling, the scope of this ruling, and provide agencies with guidance for compliance. 

If your agency determined – based on the DOL’s Rule – that you were exempt from the FFCRA expanded employee leave requirements, this is an ESSENTIAL webinar to help you assess the impact and implement a compliance strategy.
