Enterprise Coverage and Residential Care Facilities

Residential care facilities, such as hospitals and nursing homes, are covered under the FLSA on an enterprise basis regardless of their annual dollar volume of sales and services.

Coverage is extended to work centers or community rehabilitation programs (CRPs) that are operated (a) in or as part of a hospital or (b) in or as part of an institution primarily engaged in the care of the sick, the aged, or those with mental illness who reside on the premises (for example, a group home for people with mental disabilities).

Individuals employed by such enterprises are protected by all the provisions of the FLSA whether they are “staff” or “consumers.”

I would like to:
