Overtime Update (as of 11/5/15)
You may have seen or heard there have been some court rulings, appeals filed, and other high level activity on the matter of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) which proposed provider overtime and travel time pay for those who qualify.
The California Department of Social Services (CDSS) released a statement on November 4, 2015, to provide California's plan to start overtime pay in February 2016, and detailed various activities that CDSS, Fresno County IHSS and Public Authority will have to prepare to have in place by that time. Please take a moment to read the CDSS FLSA Statement.
What we do know:
- The overtime and travel time rules are not in effect at this time.
- We are not aware of any changes to provider timesheets at this time.
- Keep a look out for informational notices sent by CDSS, Fresno County IHSS and Public Authority to recipients and providers about overtime, work week caps, paperwork requirements and training opportunities.
