II. Request for Comment

    The Department is proposing to revise the Fair Labor Standards Act 
minimum wage, overtime and recordkeeping regulations pertaining to the 
exemptions for companionship services and live-in domestic services. 
The Department proposes to amend the regulations to revise the 
definitions of ``domestic service employment'' and ``companionship 
services.'' The Department also proposes to more specifically describe 
the type of activities and duties that may be considered ``incidental'' 
to the provision of companionship services. In addition, the Department 
proposes to amend the recordkeeping requirements for live-in domestic 
workers. Finally, the Department proposes to amend the regulation 
pertaining to employment by a third party of companions and live-in 
domestic workers. This change would continue to allow the individual, 
family, or household employing the worker's services to apply the 
companionship and live-in exemptions and would deny all third party 
employers the use of such exemptions.
    On December 15, 2011, President Obama announced that the Department 
of Labor was proposing the rule changes. The Department posted a Notice 
of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM), complete with background information, 
economic impact analyses and proposed regulatory text, on its Web site 
that day. The Department published the NPRM in the Federal Register on 
December 27, 2011 (76 FR 81190), requesting public comments on the
