An Act To Amend Title 19 Of The Delaware Code Relating To Domestic Service Employees.

Abstract

Section 1 of this Act removes domestic service workers from the definition of “employee” in Chapter 9, Title 19 of the Delaware Code pertaining to minimum wage. A domestic service worker who otherwise qualifies as an employee is entitled to a minimum wage under this Act. Section 2 of this Act creates Chapter 9A of Title 19 of the Delaware Code, provides definitions pertaining to domestic work employees, and specifies that such employees are entitled to overtime of at least one and a half times their regular pay for working time that exceeds 8 hours in one day or 40 hours in one week. Section 3 removes individuals who are employed in domestic work to the exception contained in Chapter 23, Title 19 of the Delaware Code pertaining to workers’ compensation. A domestic service worker who otherwise qualifies as an employee rather than a contractor or other non-covered individual under Chapter 23, Title 19 of the Delaware Code is entitled to workers’ compensation coverage under this Act.
