WHAT IS THE PUBLIC AUTHORITY?
The Public Authority was created to help the Recipients of In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) find Providers so they can remain in their home safely and independently. The Public Authority is the employer of record for the purpose of negotiating wages, benefits and working
conditions with the local union.
WHAT IS THE PROVIDER REGISTRY?
The Provider Registry maintains a database of Providers that have been screened and trained by the Public Authority. The Provider Registry helps link IHSS Recipients to Providers. When an IHSS Recipient asks for help to find a Provider, the Public Authority matches Providers in the Registry to the Recipient's physical location, authorized tasks and work schedule. Since the Recipient is the employer, the Recipient will interview Providers and make a decision on who they will hire.
Recipients can also fire a provider at will.
