Regulating Payment for Home Care Companionship Services: Legal Authority and Public Policy (2008)
This journal article discusses the legal issues in the U.S. Supreme Court case, Long Island Care at Home Ltd. vs. Coke, which upheld federal regulation exempting employees of third-party agencies providing home-based companion services from the protection of the minimum wage and overtime pay provisions. The article "identifies the important public policy questions involving the maintenance of a sufficient, competent home care workforce that were left unanswered by the legal ruling," and it explores how informal caregiving and the growing trend toward consumer-directed care is an important part of this discussion.
