Launch of New IHSS Payroll System in O.C. Likely Delayed
The long-awaited implementation of the In-Home Supportive Services program's new payroll system in Orange County -- which is scheduled for Feb. 5, 2013 -- could be postponed because of significant problems with the system in Merced, San Diego and Yolo counties, where it was launched this year. A union representing home care workers has asked the state to halt further implementation of the system until the issues have been resolved.
