-Household workers must be given 24 consecutive hours off each workweek.  If work is performed on a day off, overtime must be paid.

-A household worker who averaged 30 hours per week in the prior year is entitled to 3 paid days off each year.

-Live-in employees must be paid overtime for all hours worked over 44 in a workweek.  Live-in workers must also be given 8 consecutive hours off each day.
