Now that the public health emergency (PHE) has ended, providers are navigating how to unwind from emergency flexibilities and funding—both of which may have implications regarding compliance with wage and hour laws. For example, many states included reimbursement rate increases or hazard bonuses for direct support professionals through time-limited Appendix Ks or American Rescue Plan Act funding, and the rules governing these pay increases may be viewed differently now compared to during the PHE.
Through the unwinding, it is critical that providers have a clear understanding of when to exclude and include increases from overtime pay calculations and remain in compliance when discontinuing the use of premiums.
To help you make sense of it all, ANCOR is teaming up with experts on labor law, Gilliland, Maguire & Harper, P.C., to develop a thorough and completely updated Wage & Hour Handbook specifically for ANCOR members.
This webinar will provide participants with a better understanding of the Fair Labor Standards Act, with emphasis on emerging topics from the unwinding of the PHE.
A recording will be made available for registrants.
