The legislature recognizes the important role of direct support workers like yourself who assist people with disabilities and older adults. Accurate recognizes this too and is delighted to work with the State of Minnesota to get you this temporary increase.
The increase is intended to cover increased wages and benefits. “Benefits” include (but are not limited to) the costs of worker’s compensation insurance and the employer portion of payroll taxes. In compliance with this law, 80% of this temporary increase will be used to pay for direct wages plus PCA benefits. The other 20% will be used for activities and items necessary to support compliance with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance on sanitation and personal protective equipment.
This increase is temporary and applies to hours billed between December 1, 2020 and February 7, 2021.
Accurate Home Care will be increasing each PCAs hourly compensation rate by $1/hr during this temporary period.
You will receive this increase in your regular paycheck.
If you have questions about your paycheck, please contact our payroll department by calling 763-633-3800 and ask to speak to either human resources or payroll.
