Despite having hosted several joint DOL/DLSE trainings, we understand that there are still many ARF & RCFE operators trying to grasp the labor laws for residential care. Many are uncertain of how to apply these labor laws to their caregivers and/or are weary of their increasing labor costs.

This time, 6Beds will present this labor training with an intuitive and narrative approach by beginning with what matters most to many care home operators — how to comply with live-ins.

We will work through this topic until everyone understands the nuance of how to comply with live-ins, as well as their important role to care and supervision compliance and the significant savings they bring to your labor cost. From there, we will cover the other areas of federal and state labor laws that regulate caregivers.

We will cover the following topics:

  • Live-ins
  • Exempt vs Non-exempt
  • Workday & Workweek
  • Overtime
  • Bi-Weekly Pay Period vs Bi-Monthly Pay Period
  • Fixed Salary vs Hourly Wage
  • Hourly Rate vs Regular Rate
  • Rest Breaks and (On-Duty) Meal Breaks
  • Split-shift
  • Paid Sick Leave
  • Travel Time
  • Meals and Lodging Credit
  • Record Keeping
  • Timesheet

Understanding labor compliance for care homes is a complex and often arduous undertaking. There’s just a lot to know! Yet as operators, it is paramount that you understand and apply these laws to help you legally operate and protect your care homes. Failure to comply can be financially disastrous and potentially life altering for both you and your business.


DON’T LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOU:


On the flipside, there are many of you out there, who  out of fear of a labor audit or private lawsuit overcompensate with redundant staffing and overtime, as well as employing only live-outs. This too can lead to potential facility closures as it leads to unnecessary increased labor costs, which ultimately drain your bottom line.

When you understand the labor laws and are able to apply them correctly with confidence to your facilities, three things will happen:

  1. You will exponentially reduce your exposure to liabilities arising from thousands to millions of dollars of public and private lawsuits;
  2. You will understand the baseline cost to operate your care home and thereby help you implement optimal, compliant staffing models that can save you hundreds to millions of dollars over the long life of your care homes; and
  3. You will standardize this industry’s caregiver hiring and employment practices by legally classifying them as either a 24-hour worker, permanent or extended live-in, reliever or a live-out. This in turn will (1) help lift and ease the costly labor audits and private lawsuits pervasive in our industry today and (2) help ease the rising hourly wages of caregivers as we adhere to the boundaries set forth by the labor laws — standardizing employment expectations and benefits.

If you are unsure of your implementation of the labor laws for your caregivers, we strongly encourage you to attend this workshop.

This workshop is FREE/OPEN to all operators.
