In-Home Workers Protest Brown’s Plan To Ban Overtime
Home health advocates are protesting a provision in Gov. Jerry Brown's (D) fiscal year 2014-2015 budget proposal that would prohibit individuals employed by California's In-Home Supportive Services program from receiving overtime time. The proposal would circumvent a new federal rule that requires additional overtime pay for domestic workers. Currently, IHSS caregivers can work more than 40 hours a week but are paid straight time for working the extra hours.
