Assembly Bill 2455 (Statutes 2018, Chapter 917, Section 2) created a new law that affects all Registered Home Care Aides.
This law requires CDSS to provide the name and telephone numbers of Registered Home Care Aides to labor organizations, when requested.

are subject to their names and telephone numbers being released to labor organizations. If you do not want your personal information released,
please select "opt-out" below. You may find more information on AB 2455 here:
