STATUS OF PROPOSED RULEMAKING: IN-HOME SUPPORTIVE SERVICES EMPLOYER-EMPLOYEE RELATIONS ACT

On December 6, 2013, PERB transmitted emergency In-Home Supportive Services Employer-Employee Relations Act (IHSSEERA) regulation text directly to the Secretary of State. Upon filing with the Secretary of State, the emergency regulations became effective, commencing a 180-day period for PERB to substantially comply with and complete the Certificate of Compliance rulemaking process.

On February 13, 2014, the Board authorized the commencement of the rulemaking process in order to develop permanent IHSSEERA regulations. The Board provided to interested persons a written comment period, which closed on April 14, 2014. The Board conducted a public hearing on April 17, 2014, and authorized PERB to continue with this rulemaking action. On May 29, 2014, PERB filed its Certificate of Compliance Rulemaking File with the Office of Administrative Law (OAL) as a File & Print Only filing. On July 10, 2014, OAL approved the rulemaking file and submitted the file to the Secretary of State, effective on filing.

Below is a link to the final regulation text as approved by OAL.
