Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner's administration has suspended a no-overtime policy for workers who care for disabled residents in their homes.
Secretary of Human Services James Dimas says his agency will seek a policy through an administrative rules process with the Illinois Legislature's consent.
The home-care workers' union, SEIU Healthcare Illinois, planned to file a lawsuit challenging the rule.
SEIU vice president Terri Harkin says barring overtime forces clients to find backup caregivers not readily available.
