Chapters 388-71, 106, 114 WAC

In the Home Care Association of America, et. al. v David Weil, et al. decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals, United States, for the District of Columbia, the court upheld new U.S. Department of Labor overtime rules. The new rules may require the department to pay overtime to Individual Providers who work more than 40 hours per week. In order to ensure the cost effective use of state funds and to maximize effective use of limited resources, the department is considering the adoption of rules related to the implementation of overtime. The rules may include, but are not limited to, rules that: (1)  describe the number of hours the department may approve an individual provider to work in a work week; (2) describe when the department may approve an individual provider to work more than the work week limit;  (3) describe DSHS client and IP responsibilities; (4) describe how the department will respond when individual providers work more service hours than the work week limit; and (5) describe how travel time is approved and authorized. These rules are necessary to implement payment of overtime in an effective and cost-effective manner.
