ACL 06-03 – Workers’ Compensation and IHSS providers (March 10, 2006)

Skipping the gory details, “the changes in SB 899 affect every employee in the State of California.” One change involves Worker’s Comp (“WC”) “Return to Work” programs. This impacts some, but not all, IHSS providers, as some, but not all, receive employer (i.e. state) provided workers’ comp. The State must provide WC to IHSS providers in the Individual Provider (IP) and the County Contract Modes. Accordingly, the State shall provide Return-to-Work and Supplemental Job Displacement benefits for these two modes. In addition, the State shall be responsible for the requirements to offer modified/alternative work to an injured employee under the IP Mode. Those program benefits are also described in the ACIN.
