The National Human Services Assembly (National Assembly) submitted public comments on the Department of Labor's (DOL) proposed rule to update the exemptions to the overtime pay requirement under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). As you may know, the proposed rule, published on July 6, 2015, would increase the minimum salary threshold to approximately $50,000, below which employers would be required to pay the overtime wage rate for work in excess of forty hours per work week.

The National Resource Center for Supported Decision Making, operated by Quality Trust, an ACL grantee, is expanding its library of supported decision-making resources. Supported decision-making empowers older adults and people with disabilities by ensuring that they are the ultimate decision-makers in their  lives. In addition, the model is flexible enough to allow people to receive support from others in some areas of their lives, while still maintaining overall self-determination and control.

Supported decision-making tools can include durable powers-of-attorney, advance directives, health care proxies, representative payee regimes, direct bank deposit systems, and peer support programs. Please submit materials to Shirley Bondon, Quality Trust's Health and Aging Policy Fellow.
