Labor update

• Many frontline senior living employees are seeing a noticeable bump in their paychecks. During the second quarter, weekly wages for full-time workers making $13 to $20 an hour rose by 3.1% over the prior year, according to new Labor Department figures. That marks the fastest uptick since 2009. Although higher wages increase operating costs, they can make it easier to find qualified workers, experts claim. 

• In a decision that could affect senior living organizations, the National Labor Relations Board recently ruled that a supermarket operator must fully compensate workers who have been terminated unlawfully. The employees also should be compensated for costs incurred while looking for a new job, the board ruled.
