The State of California minimum wage increases to $12.00 per hour for employers with 26 or more employees and $11.00 per hour for employers with 25 or fewer employees on January 1, 2019. 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 $12.00 per hour (or $11.00 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. If a vendor number has multiple rates that are impacted by the minimum wage increase, you must submit one workbook for each sub-code rate. REMINDER: The deadline to submit is March 1, 2019. Requests submitted after the deadline will not be considered.
November Flu Shot Clinic Schedule
The most effective way to fight the flu is with the flu shot.
There are a number of things to consider during cold and flu season, so be sure to check out our Colds and Flu Fast Facts sheet for more information about the difference between a cold and the flu, how to prevent the spread of germs, and protect against the flu with a flu shot.
To that effect, Lanterman's Clinical Services Department compiled a handy schedule of locations within the Center's service area that are providing flu shots during the month of November.
Some of the flu shot clinics are one-day, while others are taking place all month long. Some require an appointment, while others are walk-in. Please note that some may have a small co-pay. Click the link below to view and download the schedule.
