Supes opposing new state support service regs

New proposed state regulations would prohibit people with felony or serious misdemeanor convictions from serving as homecare provides in the state’s In-Home Supportive Services program.

But a court injunction is in place keeping the new rules from going into effect and Supervisor John Avalos has submitted a resolution urging the state’s Department of Social Services to withdraw the new regulations.

On Monday, the Board of Supervisors City Operations and Neighborhood Services Committee voted in support of the resolution and forwarded it to full board for a vote.

“It runs counter to what we would like to see,” Avalos said, calling the restriction a “mean-spirited regulation.”

San Francisco currently has about 18,000 in-home support service workers.

“Formerly incarcerated people, having paid their debt to society, should share employment rights guaranteed to all workers and need not encounter obstacles to obtaining gainful employment and positively contributing to society,” the resolution says.
