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.
Lanterman Internship Opportunities
We have two different internship programs at Lanterman:
- The Roberta Happe Memorial Internship, which is for students studying in non-traditional majors to gain knowledge and experience in the work we do at Lanterman.
- A general internship for students studying in traditional majors, such as social work, education or psychology to gain additional experience in a related field.
All internships are based on the Center’s needs at a specific time and depend on what the Center can accommodate at any given time.
