Presentation: Paying Caregivers

Are you confused about the rules regarding paying caregivers? On May 18, 2016, I will be presenting:

Understanding Wage and Hour Laws When Paying Caregivers

to the Silicon Valley Chapter of the Professional Fiduciary Association of California (PFAC).

The presentation will:

  • Explain changes in the law regarding wages for caregivers, personal attendants and companions.
  • Provide information fiduciaries need so they can comply with the law without breaking the bank.
  • Show fiduciaries how to minimize the costs associated with the new laws without increasing their liability.

I’ve had the opportunity to present numerous topics for fiduciaries, and this is one of my favorites.  Most families are not prepared to hire caregivers directly, but the increasing cost of in-home care leaves families with few choices.  Most families want to comply with the law, but there is a lot of confusion and misinformation regarding how to employe caregivers in the home.

I will cover recent changes in state and federal law as well as minimum wage increases for California employers.  We will discuss how to properly track and pay for all hours worked, and when you can and cannot deduct for meals and lodging.

I look forward to seeing everyone from the Silicon Valley Chapter.  The presentation is at 8:00 a.m., at:

Holders Country Inn
998 S De Anza Blvd, San Jose, CA 95129
