The State of California minimum wage increases to $13.00 per hour for employers with 26 or more employees and $12.00 per hour for employers with 25 or fewer employees on January 1, 2020. The Department of Developmental Services (DDS) has been allocated additional funds by the Legislature for dissemination to service providers to meet the increased minimum wage mandate. It is important to note that the funds allocated by DDS are solely to meet a service provider's costs to increase employee/staff wages to $13.00 per hour (or $12.00 per hour based on the number of employees) and the associated mandated costs (i.e. Social Security, Medicare and workers’ compensation). Please click on the link below to read the letter from DDS, then click on the Workbook link to complete your request for a rate adjustment. SPECIAL NOTE: Only one rate adjustment request per workbook. You must submit one workbook for each vendor number. REMINDER: The deadline to submit is March 1, 2020. Requests submitted after the deadline will not be considered.

For both the new and seasoned manager, the difficult employee can serve as the greatest obstacle in providing an effective and team oriented environment. This presentation provides the audience with ten tips for gaining and staying in control of difficult employees.
Dr. Tom Pomeranz details factors which influence some employees to behave in passive aggressive ways and shares how managers can help the difficult employee conduct themselves in more socially acceptable ways. Through the implementation of five intervention approaches, detailed in the training, many difficult employees take their place as valued team members. The session compares and contrasts the use of personal power versus positional authority as a preferred management approach in resolving conflict nurtured by the difficult staff member.
