Repeal Of Repeal Date For Domestic Workers Bill Of Rights

On September 12, 2016, the Governor signed a bill that repeals the former repeal date of the Domestic Workers Bill of Rights (“DWBOR”).  That repeal date, formerly, was January 1, 2017.  Under this new law, the DWBOR becomes permanent. 

 The DWBOR  provides that a domestic work employee who is a personal attendant shall not be employed more than nine hours in any workday or more than 45 hours in any workweek unless the employee receives one and one-half times the employee’s regular rate of pay for all hours worked over nine hours in any workday and for all hours worked more than 45 hours in the workweek.
