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.
