The No Surprises Act was signed in 2020. It came into effect on January 01, 2022, for most consumers in individual and group health insurance plans. This act is designed to protect patients from surprise bills for emergency services.
Home care providers must pay their non-exempt employers semimonthly on their regular paydays, which the home care provider chooses in advance. The providers must choose the payday, which must be within 11 days of the end of the pay period. They should give their workers a statement of deductions from their pay.
Oklahoma is an at-will state, meaning the home care provider may terminate a worker anytime for any reason. However, one exception to this rule is that the cause must not be discriminatory.
