Updates In-Home Supportive Services Resources Available
September 7, 2023
CSAC has created an updated version of the IHSS Wages and Bargaining Brief (September 2023) in partnership with the County Welfare Directors Association of California (CWDA) and the California Association of Public Authorities (CAPA). This resource provides an overview of the tools and procedures related to In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) wages, benefits, and collective bargaining that have been established in recent IHSS legislation.
The updated version reflects the changes enacted this year through the human services trailer bill, AB 120 (Chapter 43, Statutes of 2023). That legislation increased and made ongoing the 1991 Realignment withholding related to IHSS collective bargaining that could potentially apply to counties without a collective bargaining agreement in place. It did not alter the four conditions that must occur prior to any withholding being applied. In addition, this version includes updated examples of the wage supplement and ten percent over three years tool to reflect the current state minimum wage and state participation cap.
