NAHC Argues Overtime Lawsuit Before the US Court of Appeals
A three-judge panel heard oral argument on Thursday at the US Court of Appeals in DC on NAHC’s challenge to the validity of new Department of Labor rules governing overtime compensation for “companionship services” and “live-in domestic services.” The case involves the government’s appeal of the federal District Court ruling that sided with NAHC and invalidated both rules that were scheduled to take effect on January 1, 2015. NAHC is joined in the lawsuit by the International Franchise Association and the Home Care association of America.
In the appeal, the Department of Labor (DoL) is represented by the US Justice Department. NAHC and its co-plaintiffs are represented by Maurice Baskin of Littler Mendelson and Bill Dombi, Director of NAHC’s Center for Health Care Law.
