The 2021 General Assembly passed HB2137 requiring employers of home health workers to provide paid sick leave benefits to essential employees who work an average of 20 hours per week or 90 hours per month. The Virginia Medicaid agency is in the planning phase of this important benefit for home care attendants employed through the Consumer-Directed program.
