Am I responsible for paying overtime or special rates on a holiday?

Household employers are not responsible for paying overtime or special rates on holidays unless working on these days causes the caregiver (employee) to work over 40 hours in a workweek.
We recommend that families negotiate their compensation rates with their caregivers. If the caregiver is taking the day off during a holiday, employers are not required to pay for that day.
You should also be aware that in some states, like California, overtime is determined on a per day basis rather than a workweek total.
