Temporary Changes to IHSS Timesheet Violations
Dear IHSS Providers,
In the midst of this COVID 19 crisis, our union and its members are committed to continuing to advocate with state and local elected leaders for what our caregivers need to do their jobs safely and effectively.
This includes requesting changes that help alleviate the stress and anxiety our caregivers are facing in this moment.
We are happy to announce that as a result of our efforts the CDSS (California Department of Social Services) has agreed to forego the processing of IHSS violations for the time being.
We encourage all IHSS providers to continue to be diligent in reviewing their timesheets to make sure they reflect the approved care hours of your consumer(s).
If you believe that your consumer requires more hours in this moment, please start to document daily the additional care and time you believe is needed and reach out to your social worker to see if they can do a re-assessment of hours over the phone. Please make sure you stay connected to your union and get the latest updates on the progress of our work during this crisis. You can do that by checking our website www.seiu2015.org and following us on Facebook and Twitter @SEIU2015
