PCA Overtime Use

Thanks to all of you who called your legislators and asked them to support and sign on to Representative Hogan's letter. Many of them signed and we could not have done it without you.

There is still work to be done. Stavros has met with some of the Representatives and Senators and discussed why this issue is so important to so many people in western Massachusetts. But you need to do your part to make #Advocacywork. Please tell your legislator your story why are these changes matter to you.

DON'T Know who your Senator is? No worries go to  while you are there if you have not register to vote take the opportunity to register it only takes 5 minutes.

Updated information on Overtime Regulations as of October 4th can be found here

Attention PCA users: Regulations have been passed that limit the number of hours a PCA can work to 40 hours per week (with a possible exception policy)! If a PCA works for you for more than 40 hours a week, he or she will have to cut back to 40 hours. And if you share a PCA with another consumer so that PCA works more than 40 hours, that PCA will have to cut back on the hours he or she works for you or the other consumer.

Live-in PCAs will have different rules, but their hours would still be capped
