Updates on Recent Developments in Employment Law for the Home Care Industry

The following legal update for home care is from our friends at Polsinelli and is an exclusive benefit for Private Duty Home Care at NAHC members.

Hi Friends and Clients! Having somewhat settled into the new shop, we wanted to provide you with some news on recent developments that we think may be important to you.

As I am sure you have heard, President Biden’s Infrastructure Plan proposes $400 Billion to go to the Home and Community Based-Services programs operated through Medicare. This would be a substantial increase over current funding and appears to be championed by the SEIU. If the PRO Act becomes law (more on this below), we certainly expect to see much more union organizing in this space – including spillover into private pay agencies.
