As new regulatory requirements come into effect in California, and soon the nation, home care providers are in desperate need of a management solution that helps them efficiently and effectively meet new guidelines surrounding overtime pay requirements.
In California, AB241 requires domestic workers, including in-home care providers to be paid overtime for any work done over 9 hours in a given day or 45 hours in a work week, with pay being calculated at using the average rate of pay. In most cases, this requires more than a simple calculation for proper payment and can significantly increase the amount of time that agencies spend on administrative processes like payroll and billing.
However, ClearCare Online’s home care software and home care system can offer a streamlined solution to allow overtime alerts, overtime calculations and customized settings that provide an automated solution within the home care software.
