  • (1888PressRelease) November 24, 2015 - Minneapolis, MN, USA - Best Home Care (, a Minneapolis home care agency, is now offering same-day paychecks to their entire staff of home care professionals and personal care assistants. This news comes after the passing of a law in the State of Minnesota that requires Minnesota home care agencies to compensate their PCAs for every hour of overtime worked. The new bill signals a momentous shift in home care administration practices and Best Home Care is proud to be a leader in this movement.

    By offering same-day paychecks, Best Home Care seeks to provide an efficient solution to a common need among home care professionals and family caregivers. Using Best Home Care's exclusive Homecare Timesheet App, personal care assistants are able to request payments when they need them instead of waiting until the end of a pay period. The Minnesota PCA agency also allows their employees to submit timesheets via fax, email, and electronic PDF while offering timesheet reminders via telephone or email.

    "Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for our personal care assistants to be compensated for the home health care services they provide," said Andre Best, Owner of Best Home Care. "Often times, PCAs will have difficulty submitting their timesheets on time or have a small mistake on their timesheet. Instead of waiting another two weeks to be paid, we seek to provide a way for our home care professionals to receive their money when they need it."

    On October 13th, the new home care overtime laws went into effect throughout Minnesota. This law greatly benefits personal care attendants working for a home care agency that provides overtime pay as they are now compensated for their work. However, a good number of Minnesota PCA agencies do not allow for overtime pay and as a result, these agencies were forced to cut employee's hours to comply with the new state requirements. Despite these recent legislative changes within the home health care industry, Best Home Care has not cut any hours or pay rates for their personal care assistants; staying true to a promise that owner Andre Best made to employees.
