Beginning July 1, 2018, the IHSS Paid Sick Leave Program became available for current, active IHSS program providers.

The California Department of Social Services started a program that allowed current, active IHSS providers in all California counties the ability to receive annual paid sick leave beginning State Fiscal Year July 1, 2018.

Eligibility

New IHSS providers who began working for a recipient after July 1, 2018 received:

Eight hours of paid sick leave after working 100 hours of providing authorized services for an IHSS recipient after their initial hire date. These eight hours of accrued paid sick leave cannot be used until an additional 200 hours of authorized services have been worked or until after 60 calendar days has passed, whichever comes first.

Existing IHSS providers who began working for a recipient prior to July 1, 2018 received:

Eight hours of paid sick leave after working 100 hours of providing authorized services for an IHSS recipient beginning State Fiscal Year July 1, 2018. These eight hours of accrued paid sick leave cannot be used until an additional 200 hours of authorized services have been worked or until after 60 calendar days has passed, whichever comes first.

These are one-time requirements that must be completed to accrue and use paid sick leave. A provider who completes the hours or time requirements will continue to accrue eight hours of paid sick leave each State Fiscal Year, July 1, as he/she continues to work as an active IHSS provider. Any provider who ceases employment with IHSS for longer than one year shall be considered inactive, and would need to complete the process again to earn and use paid sick leave.

At the end of each State Fiscal Year, June 30th, any unused paid sick leave will expire.

Accrual will be increased to 16 hours of paid sick leave for each year, calendar year or twelve-month period of employment on the date on which the State minimum wage reaches $13.00 per hour (scheduled for January 1, 2020) and to 24 hours of paid sick leave for each year, calendar, or twelve-month period of employment on the date on which the State minimum wage reaches $15.00 per hour (scheduled for January 1, 2022).
