Homecare Exchange 1. Nature of Homecare Exchange Services: SEIU Local 2015, provides this Union Provider Homecare Exchange at no cost to the provider or care recipient, for the express purpose of facilitating and/or assisting in the development of the employment relationship between the provider and potential care recipient. However, the decision of whether to employ any potential provider applicant is solely at the discretion and control of the care recipient. Homecare Exchange services are entirely optional and voluntary. The Homecare Exchange shall require that all provider applicants comply with all state laws and regulations required for their services as a provider (including all required background checks). However, the Homecare Exchange is not responsible for any further or independent verification of whether the provider has actually met all the conditions, beyond the normal presentation of documents indicating that such requirements have indeed been met. Beyond this initial screening process, the Homecare Exchange does not perform any additional evaluation, interviews, or other means of verify or vouching for the quality of the provider Homecare Exchange applicant. Therefore, it is essential that the care recipient conduct his/her own evaluation of the provider prior to establishing the employment relationship. Further, the Homecare Exchange does not warrant the quality of the applicant or his or her abilities to carry-out the duties required by the care recipient. The Homecare Exchange will, however, conduct some limited matching of the provider to the stated needs of the care recipient profile. Any care recipient and applicant provider therefore must use their own judgment and make their own decisions regarding one another’s skills, character and compatibility, and as to how well they may meet each other’s needs. The care recipient and provider assume and accept the risk of such decisions. 2. Independent Provider Mode of Service: When a care recipient offers employment to a provider, and the provider has accepted such employment the provider becomes the care recipient’s employee. In accordance with the law and County DPSS requirements and guidelines, the care recipient has sole authority to hire, assign hours and duties, direct the work, supervise, evaluate, and choose whether to continue or terminate the provider’s services. Likewise, the provider retains the right to resign such employment at any time without notice or cause. The Homecare Exchange has no authority or responsibility for any such matters or for any injuries or damages which may arise out of the referral or which may arise out of the employment, or for investigating or resolving any disputes, misunderstandings or injuries which may arise between a care recipient and a provider or any third party. RIGHTS, RESPONSIBILITIES AND RELEASE (3) Receipt and Use of Personal Information. As part of its operations, the Homecare Exchange may seek and/or receive information concerning Homecare Exchange participants, including information furnished by the care recipient about his or her needs, or employment and personal information from references (or others) of a confidential or sensitive nature. The Homecare Exchange may share such information with others for Homecare Exchange purposes, or to investigate or act upon such information to grant or deny referrals, or to suspend, exclude or remove a provider or care recipient from Homecare Exchange participation, through confidential procedures. Any disputes concerning any such uses or related decisions are to be determined by the Homecare Exchange Management Committee. The decisions of the Homecare Exchange Management Committee are final and binding upon all concerned, including Homecare Exchange staff and any involved care recipient (s) and/or provider(s), and are not to be the subject of any further proceedings or litigation of any nature. 6. Participant Responsibilities: Homecare Exchange participant and services are a revocable privilege and not a legal right or entitlement. The Homecare Exchange Management Committee can terminate the participation of any provider or care recipient at any time it deems appropriate and necessary. Each participant (provider or care recipient) is expected and required, as an ongoing condition of Homecare Exchange participation: (a) To comply with all Homecare Exchange policies, procedures and directives, and to cooperate fully with Homecare Exchange personnel; (b) To pursue all referrals diligently, by prompt follow-up, to attend all agreed upon interviews and other appointments, and to keep the Homecare Exchange updated as to all decisions; and (c) To treat Homecare Exchange staff and all other Homecare Exchange participants with civility and respect.
