Labor laws can be challenging to understand and navigate, and legal advice often comes with a high price tag. Come to the Illinois Chapter Conference on Monday, May 8, to ask all your questions and receive advice from labor law experts Aimee Delaney and Adam Guetzow, Partners at Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP.
Last Wednesday, HCAOA submitted a formal comment to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) requesting the commission amend their proposed rule that, if enacted, would amount to a near-total ban on the use of non-compete clauses.
HCAOA has partnered with Careswitch to launch the all-new Home Care Compensation Report and help members obtain free, detailed data on what other home care agencies are paying.

The Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection (DCP) will not withdraw guidance it issued in late January that bans home care agencies from using the word “care.” In a meeting with HCAOA Connecticut Chapter leaders last week, an agency official said the Department would only withdraw the guidance if the legislature required it to do so by a change in the law.
Last Wednesday, April 19, HCAOA members from Wisconsin met with legislators to advocate for home care and caregivers within the state.
According to Wisconsin Chapter Legislative Chair Mindy Ochs, President of Home Instead of Janesville, “[Advocacy Day] was a huge success and… very easy. I heard really good feedback from attendees and my meetings went really well. All [the legislators and staff] that I spoke to shared [their own] personal story about caregiving, showing they really get it and understand the importance.”
Thank you for attending Wisconsin Advocacy Day and speaking up for home care in Wisconsin!

HCAOA developed an Advocacy Fund to support state lobbyists retained by the association. These staffers are strong boots on the ground obtaining news about proposed regulations and legislation, as well as vocal advocates for the value of home care.
There are many reasons why you should donate to the HCAOA Advocacy Fund. Below are three timely ones for you to consider:
The Federal Trade Commission’s proposed ban on non-compete agreements could have significant effects on home care. HCAOA has been watching this issue closely and will submit extensive comments to the Commission later today. The full comment and analysis of HCAOA’s response will be shared next week in the Home Care Insider.
Following a webinar Littler held last week, HCAOA approached the law firm to help unpack the issues surrounding the proposed ban for home care providers. HCAOA thanks Littler attorneys Jim Paretti, Michael Lotito, Joshua Vaughn and their team for responding to our questions.
