Moratorium from Labor Enforcement is what residential care facilities need now

In January 1988, the Department of Labor suspended its numerous compliance investigations of group homes around the country to develop a consistent enforcement policy resulting in a Moratorium.

On June 30, 1988, the Department promulgated an Enforcement Policy “refining and restating” the interpretations set forth in its earlier letter rulings. (Source: Dept. Of Labor)

One thought on “Moratorium from Labor Enforcement is what residential care facilities need now

  1. 6Beds wants to educate its members on labor requirements and promote full compliance.

    First there must be an understanding with DOL on an employee agreement documenting mutually agreed-upon hours worked per day for 24 hour live in caregivers, and an acceptable Time card to document that it has been followed – That caregivers have been compensated fairly for ALL hours they have worked.

    This will take time, which is why a moratorium is necessary – appropriate – equitable – and fair!
