"Home care registries, COVID-19 and the 2020 election: A primer"

These steps can help home care registries navigate a tumultuous social and political landscape. 

Even before COVID-19, the 2020 U.S. presidential election was set to be a divisive one. Now those in the home care sector are struggling to react to the changes already underway and those in store for the rest of the year. As a result, if you manage a home care registry, you may be looking for answers about how to prepare for an uncertain future. This guide provides an action plan.  

About the Guide 

For home health and caregiver registries, the challenges of COVID-19 combined with the recent regulatory focus on contract caregiver misclassification are placing an obvious strain on the model. How can you reduce the severity of these impacts? In this guide, we examine how: 

  • The 2015 Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) update negatively affected the registry model 

  • The 2018 DOL Field Assistance Bulletin (FAB) outlined specific methods to determine whether you’re treating contracted caregivers as employees 

  • Leveraging the right technology can combat audits or lawsuits alleging misclassification 

  • The entire landscape is shifting due to COVID-19 and the potential impact of the 2020 U.S. presidential election on the registry model
