Sick Leave

From CDSS:
June 1, 2019

Dear IHSS Provider,

You will get 8 hours of paid sick leave on July 1, 2019. Any earned sick leave hours you currently have will expire on June 30, 2019.

If you are a new provider and have not yet earned your sick leave hours by working a total of 100 hours providing authorized services to one or more IHSS recipient(s), you will get your 8 hours once you have worked the required number of hours and may begin using them once you have worked an additional 200 hours or 60 calendar days, whichever comes first.

All sick leave hours received on or after July 1, 2019, must be used by June 30, 2020. Any unused sick leave hours will expire at that time.

If you have any questions regarding your sick leave benefits, you may call your local county IHSS office or Public Authority.

Thank you.

Now that we have to enter start times and end times, what should I do if my provider works two separate shifts on the same day? There's only space put one shift per day.
