AB 241 was enacted to regulate the work hours for certain domestic work employees and provide an overtime compensation rate for those employees. The bill defines “domestic work” as services related to the care of persons in private households or maintenance of private households or their premises. Domestic work occupations include, but are not limited to, childcare providers, caregivers of people with disabilities, sick, convalescing or elderly persons, house cleaners, housekeepers, and maids. As of now, the bill provides a bill of rights for a “personal attendant,” that is, any person employed by a private householder or by any third-party employer recognized in the health care industry to work in a private household, to supervise, feed, or dress a child, or a person who by reason of advanced age, physical disability, or mental deficiency needs supervision. According to the bill, personal attendants must receive one and one half times the pay for any and all hours worked over nine hours in any workday or more than 45 hours in any week. Additions will likely be made to the bill in the future since no other rates of pay for domestic workers are defined yet.
