A federal judge has overturned the Labor Department's rules providing overtime and minimum-wage protection for home health care workers.
The rules were announced in 2011 by President Obama, reports The Associated Press. Federal employment regulations had previously exempted home health care workers from wage and overtime requirements for other types of employees. The new rules were due to take effect January 1, but had been delayed pending the judge's ruling.
