Uniform Holiday Schedule
The State of California Attorney General’s office filed an appeal on April 15, 2015 to dismiss the Court’s ruling on the 14 day uniform holiday schedule and half-day billings. We will provide updates as we get more information on the status of this appeal and its impact on service providers.
Notice regarding Cesar Chavez Holiday on March 31, 2015
The Department of Developmental Services (DDS) informed regional centers that a federal court has issued an injunction against enforcement of the Uniform Holiday Schedule pursuant to Welfare and Institutions Code (WIC) Section 4692. This statute which prohibited regional centers from funding specified vendored services on the previously identified mandatory holidays is no longer being enforced. Therefore, RCEB vendors may provide their regular services on Tuesday, March 31st, 2015. Confirmation and documentation of service provision may be required. The Vendor Electronic Billing (e-Billing) application is to be adjusted by DDS to allow for billing on the days previously identified as uniform holidays.
Inquiries should be directed to RCEB Community Services Department (510) 618-7710 or by emailing UHS@rceb.org.
