In-home caregivers ensure that seniors and people with disabilities get the care and support they need to stay in their homes. Despite providing such important care for our consumers, some care agencies still violate rules that protect us, making it harder to do our jobs.
Come learn about:
Are you getting paid correctly for the work you do? Should I be getting paid the same for sleep time, drive time, and when doing different tasks?
What rights do I have to be paid on time, or to ensure my paycheck does not bounce?
Do I have the right to connect with other caregivers in my workplace and to work together to fix problems or fight retaliation?
Can I speak out about my experiences?
