The California Department of Justice (DOJ) provides criminal history information to employers of persons who are non-licensed and providing non-medical domestic or personal care to an aged or disabled adult in the adult’s own home. This also includes applicants for In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) or personal care services under Medi-Cal program administered by individual county agencies pursuant to Section 15660 of the Welfare and Institutions Code. Please note: Federal Bureau of Investigation background checks cannot be requested pursuant to this law.
If you meet the aforementioned criteria and are interested in obtaining a background check of an IHSS provider or non-licensed individual providing non-medical domestic or personal care services in your home, please read and follow the directions in this packet.
