Important: IHSS Overtime Regulations to be implemented February 1
California is finally implementing federal regulations requiring the payment of overtime, wait time and travel time for home care workers! As of February 1, 2016 IHSS providers who work over 40 hours a week will receive overtime pay (time and a half), but there will be some limits on how many hours a provider can work in a week. Providers and consumers will need to learn about these changes and new timesheets. Please click here for more information.
