Sexual harassment in the IHSS program

The California Department of Social Services (CDSS) has issued information about AB 3802 which requires CDSS to develop or identify educational materials to be made available to IHSS recipients and providers, and to propose a data collection method for the prevalence of sexual harassment in the IHSS program.

CDSS developed education materials, SOC 2326 and SOC 2327, which suggest methods to identify, prevent and resolve sexual harassment situations in the IHSS program.

The Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) will identify IHSS sexual harassment cases.  Reports can be extracted from DFEH’s database.  (ACIN I-70-19, November 18, 2019.)
