ADvancing States, NAMD, and NASDDDS Joint Statement on FLSA Non-Enforcement

The National Association of Medicaid Directors, the National Association of State Directors of Developmental Disability Services, and the ADvancing States issued the following statement in response to a Department of Labor announcement.

"We welcome DOL’s decision to delay federal enforcement in response to our collective requests to delay the effective date. We believe DOL has sought to recognize the realities of what states must do to implement such a significant new federal policy. As part of the non-enforcement policy announcement, we also appreciate the Department clarifying its commitment to two goals: “extending basic labor protections to home care workers, and ensuring that people with disabilities and seniors continue to have access to critical home and community-based services, particularly services delivered through innovative models of care."
