Frequently Asked Questions

The Agency Office’s days and hours of operation are Monday to Sunday from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM. We are on call 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. Unless it is an emergency please call us only during regular office hours.

WHERE ARE YOUR CLIENTS?

CityCARE Home Health services clients in all seven Connecticut counties. Fairfield, New Haven, Middlesex, New London, Windham, Hartford, Litchfield.

WHEN WILL I BE PAID?

City CARE Home Health has a standard 40-hour work week, which is Monday through Sunday, beginning on Monday at 12:01 am and ending on Sunday at 12:00 midnight. The Agency's pay period covers a 7-day timeframe, which starts at 12:01 am on the Monday and ends at 12 Midnight Sunday. Payday is every Friday and occurs 52 times a year. In order to make sure payroll is processed properly and to comply with Connecticut State Laws you must use the telephone clock in/out system. Pay checks will be ready for pickup at the Agency Office by appointment during office hours on Friday. This paycheck will include all hours worked the previous week.

HOW DO I GET A WORK ASSIGMENT?

  • Work assignments for in-home employees are scheduled by the Office Manager. They are offered on the basis of services required, qualifications/expertise needed and availability of employee(s).
  • Keep your contact information current with the Agency office. We must be able to reach you easily and often on short notice.
  • When you receive and accept an assignment, you agree to the hours that the job requires. Should the requirements of that job change, you will be given first option of keeping that assignment, if you are willing to work within the changes. On the other hand, if you are not able to work within the new changes, another employee will be assigned.
  • You may refuse an assignment but doing so does not mean a replacement assignment will become available; or, if one does, it doesn't mean that the replacement assignment will be given to you. There is no guarantee of work assignments, as requests for service are unpredictable and can be sporadic.
  • Sometimes assignments come up on very short-notice. Being willing to accept these last-minute assignments and/or being available to cover for sick employees, will increase your chances of receiving assignments.

DO YOU OFFER DIRECT DEPOSIT?

Direct deposit is offered to all City Care Home Health employees. If you do not wish to receive a direct deposit, Wisely cards are available free of charge and can be funded electronically. Finally, you have the option of picking up a paper check from our office.

WHAT IS THE CLOCK IN SYSTEM?

In accordance with City CARE Home Health Policy # 6.60 - Payroll, employees shall accurately record all hours worked by clocking in/out from the clients home phone. Be sure you clock in and out accurately at the beginning and end of your work shift. Your Supervisor will review your clock in/out time before it is forwarded to payroll for processing. While we make an effort to correct any clock in/out errors which we notice, your payroll hours may not include the times you failed to punch in/out. In such cases payroll correction will be made the following week. Falsifying clock in/out times are grounds for immediate Termination of Employment.

MAY I USE MY CELL PHONE WHEN I AM WITH A CLIENT?

You are not permitted to make or accept telephone calls or texts while you are on duty at clients’ homes, unless they are from Managerial Staff, or an emergency/urgent situation develops. If you carry a cell phone with you, when you are on duty, be sure to either turn it off or put it on "vibrate" to ensure clients are not disturbed. Advise others to phone the Agency Office and leave a message, should they need to reach you, while you are on duty. The Agency Office will contact you with the message. Personal phone calls and/or texting may be done on your breaks or between assignments. Long distance calls may not be made using Agency phones, unless the call is business-related. Neither may Long distance calls be made using a client's phone.

WHAT IF I CANNOT MAKE MY ASSIGMENT?

When you are not able to work because of short-term illness or other reasons, you must contact your Supervisor, as soon as you are aware that you cannot report for duty, in order that a substitute can be arranged, if necessary. As a minimum, you are required to give at least 48-hours’ notice. If you become aware, during non-office hours, that you cannot cover your assignment(s), you must contact the Supervisor on call. If you do not contact a Supervisor and fail to report for your assignment, you will be considered a "no-show" and may be subject to disciplinary action.

      Eligibility Verification

      Instructions
      Read all instructions carefully before completing this form.


      Anti-Discrimination Notice. It is illegal to discriminate against any individual (other than an alien not authorized to work in the United States) in hiring, discharging, or recruiting or referring for a fee because of that individual's national origin or citizenship status. It is illegal to discriminate against work-authorized individuals. Employers CANNOT specify which document(s) they will accept from an employee. The refusal to hire an individual because the documents presented have a future expiration date may also constitute illegal discrimination. For more information, call the Office of Special Counsel for Immigration Related Unfair Employment Practices at 1-800-255-8155.

      What Is the Purpose of This Form?

      The purpose of this form is to document that each new employee (both citizen and noncitizen) hired after November 6, 1986, is authorized to work in the United States.

      When Should Form I-9 Be

      When Should Form I-9 Be Used?

      All employees (citizens and noncitizens) hired after November 6, 1986, and working in the United States must complete Form I-9

      Filling Out Form I-9

      Section 1, Employee

      This part of the form must be completed no later than the time of hire, which is the actual beginning of employment. Providing the Social Security Number is voluntary, except for employees hired by employers participating in the USCIS Electronic Employment Eligibility Verification Program (E-Verify). The employer is responsible for ensuring that Section 1 is timely and properly completed.

      Noncitizen nationals of the United States are persons born in American Samoa, certain former citizens of the former Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands, and certain children of noncitizen nationals born abroad.

      Employers should note the work authorization expiration date (if any) shown in Section 1. For employees who indicate an mployment authorization expiration date in Section 1, employers are required to reverify employment authorization for employment on or before the date shown. Note that some employees may leave the expiration date blank if they are aliens whose work authorization does not expire (e.g., asylees, refugees, certain citizens of the Federated States of Micronesia or the Republic of the Marshall Islands). For such employees, reverification does not apply unless they choose to present

      in Section 2 evidence of employment authorization that contains an expiration date (e.g., Employment Authorization Document (Form I-766)).

      Preparer/Translator Certification

      The Preparer/Translator Certification must be completed if Section 1 is prepared by a person other than the employee. A preparer/translator may be used only when the employee is unable to complete Section 1 on his or her own. However, the employee must still sign Section 1 personally.

      Section 2, Employer

      For the purpose of completing this form, the term "employer" means all employers including those recruiters and referrers for a fee who are agricultural associations, agricultural employers, or farm labor contractors. Employers must complete Section 2 by examining evidence of identity and employment authorization within three business days of the date employment begins. However, if an employer hires an individual for less than three business days, Section 2 must be completed at the time employment begins. Employers cannot specify which document(s) listed on the last page of Form I-9 employees present to establish identity and employment authorization. Employees may present any List A document OR a combination of a List B and a List C document.

      If an employee is unable to present a required document (or documents), the employee must present an acceptable receipt in lieu of a document listed on the last page of this form. Receipts showing that a person has applied for an initial grant of employment authorization, or for renewal of employment authorization, are not acceptable. Employees must present receipts within three business days of the date employment begins and must present valid replacement documents within 90 days or other specified time.

      Employers must record in Section 2:

      1. Document title;
      2. Issuing authority;
      3. Document number;
      4. Expiration date, if any; and
      5. The date employment begins.

      Employers must sign and date the certification in Section 2. Employees must present original documents. Employers may, but are not required to, photocopy the document(s) presented. If photocopies are made, they must be made for all new hires. Photocopies may only be used for the verification process and must be retained with Form I-9. Employers are still responsible for completing and retaining Form I-9.

      For more detailed information, you may refer to the USCIS Handbook for Employers (Form M-274). You may obtain the handbook using the contact information found under the header "USCIS Forms and Information."

      Section 3, Updating and Reverification

      Employers must complete Section 3 when updating and/or reverifying Form I-9. Employers must reverify employment authorization of their employees on or before the work authorization expiration date recorded in Section1 (if any). Employers CANNOT specify which document(s) they will accept from an employee.

      A. If an employee's name has changed at the time this form is being updated/reverified, complete Block A.

      B. If an employee is rehired within three years of the date this form was originally completed and the employee is still authorized to be employed on the same basis as previously indicated on this form (updating), complete Block B and the signature block.

      C. If an employee is rehired within three years of the date this form was originally completed and the employee's work authorization has expired or if a current employee's work authorization is about to expire (reverification), complete Block B; and:

      1. Examine any document that reflects the employee is authorized to work in the United States (see List A or C);

      2. Record the document title, document number, and expiration date (if any) in Block C; and

      3. Complete the signature block.

      Note that for reverification purposes, employers have the option of completing a new Form I-9 instead of completing Section 3.

      What Is the Filing Fee?

      There is no associated filing fee for completing Form I-9. This form is not filed with USCIS or any government agency. Form I-9 must be retained by the employer and made available for inspection by U.S. Government officials as specified in the Privacy Act Notice below.

      (c)

      Complete Steps 2–4 ONLY if they apply to you; otherwise, skip to Step 5. See page 2 for more information on each step, who can claim exemption from withholding, when to use the online estimator, and privacy.


      Step 2:
      Multiple Jobs
      or Spouse Works

      Complete this step if you (1) hold more than one job at a time, or (2) are married filing jointly and your spousealso works. The correct amount of withholding depends on income earned from all of these jobs.
      Do only one of the following.
      (a) Use the estimator at www.irs.gov/W4App for most accurate withholding for this step (and Steps 3–4); or
      (b) Use the Multiple Jobs Worksheet on page 3 and enter the result in Step 4(c) below for roughly accurate withholding; or
      (c) If there are only two jobs total, you may check this box. Do the same on Form W-4 for the other job. This
      option is accurate for jobs with similar pay; otherwise, more tax than necessary may be withheld
      TIP: To be accurate, submit a 2020 Form W-4 for all other jobs. If you (or your spouse) have self-employment income, including as an independent contractor, use the estimator.

      Complete Steps 3–4(b) on Form W-4 for only ONE of these jobs. Leave those steps blank for the other jobs. (Your withholding will be most accurate if you complete Steps 3–4(b) on the Form W-4 for the highest paying job.)

      Step 3:
      Claim Dependents

      If your income will be $200,000 or less ($400,000 or less if married filing jointly):
      Multiply the number of qualifying children under age 17 by $2,000
      Multiply the number of other dependents by $500
      Add the amounts above and enter the total here

      Purpose of Form

      Complete Form W-4 so that your employer can withhold the correct federal income tax from your pay. If too little is withheld, you will generally owe tax when you file your tax return and may owe a penalty. If too much is withheld, you will generally be due a refund. Complete a new Form W-4 when changes to your personal or financial situation would change the entries on the form. For more information on withholding and when you must furnish a new Form W-4, see Pub. 505.

      Exemption from withholding. You may claim exemption from withholding for 2020 if you meet both of the following conditions: you had no federal income tax liability in 2019 and you expect to have no federal income tax liability in 2020. You had no federal income tax liability in 2019 if (1) your total tax on line 16 on your 2019 Form 1040 or 1040-SR is zero (or less than the sum of lines 18a, 18b, and 18c), or (2) you were not required to file a return because your income was below the filing threshold for your correct filing status. If you claim exemption, you will have no income tax withheld from your paycheck and may owe taxes and penalties when you file your 2020 tax return. To claim exemption from withholding, certify that you meet both of the conditions above by writing “Exempt” on Form W-4 in the space below Step 4(c). Then, complete Steps 1(a), 1(b), and 5. Do not complete any other steps. You will need to submit a new Form W-4 by February 16, 2021.

      Your privacy. If you prefer to limit information provided in Steps 2 through 4, use the online estimator, which will also increase accuracy.

      As an alternative to the estimator: if you have concerns with Step 2(c), you may choose Step 2(b); if you have concerns with Step 4(a), you may enter an additional amount you want withheld per pay period in Step 4(c). If this is the only job in your household, you may instead check the box in Step 2(c), which will increase your withholding and significantly reduce your paycheck (often by thousands of dollars over the year).

      When to use the estimator. Consider using the estimator at www.irs.gov/W4App if you:

      1. Expect to work only part of the year;
      2. Have dividend or capital gain income, or are subject to additional taxes, such as the
      3. additional Medicare tax;
      4. Have self-employment income (see below); or
      5. Prefer the most accurate withholding for multiple job situations.

      Self-employment. Generally, you will owe both income and self-employment taxes on any self-employment income you receive separate from the wages you receive as an employee. If you want to pay these taxes through withholding from your wages, use the estimator at www.irs.gov/W4App to figure the amount to have withheld.

      Nonresident alien. If you’re a nonresident alien, see Notice 1392, Supplemental Form W-4 Instructions for Nonresident Aliens, before completing this form.

      Specific Instructions

      Step 1(c). Check your anticipated filing status. This will determine the standard deduction and tax rates used to compute your withholding.

      Step 2. Use this step if you (1) have more than one job at the same time, or (2) are married filing jointly and you and your spouse both work.

      Option (a) most accurately calculates the additional tax you need to have withheld, while option (b) does so with a little less accuracy.

      If you (and your spouse) have a total of only two jobs, you may instead check the box in option (c). The box must also be checked on the Form W-4 for the other job. If the box is checked, the standard deduction and tax brackets will be cut in half for each job to calculate withholding. This option is roughly accurate for jobs with similar pay; otherwise, more tax than necessary may be withheld, and this extra amount will be larger the greater the difference in pay is between the two jobs.

      Multiple jobs. Complete Steps 3 through 4(b) on only one Form W-4. Withholding will be most accurate if you do this on the Form W-4 for the highest paying job.

      Step 3. Step 3 of Form W-4 provides instructions for determining the amount of the child tax credit and the credit for other dependents that you may be able to claim when you file your tax return. To qualify for the child tax credit, the child must be under age 17 as of December 31, must be your dependent who generally lives with you for more than half the year, and must have the required social security number. You may be able to claim a credit for other dependents for whom a child tax credit can’t be claimed, such as an older child or a qualifying relative. For additional eligibility requirements for these credits, see Pub. 972, Child Tax Credit and Credit for Other Dependents. You can also include other tax credits in this step, such as education tax credits and the foreign tax credit. To do so, add an estimate of the amount for the year to your credits for dependents and enter the total amount in Step 3. Including these credits will increase your paycheck and reduce the amount of any refund you may receive when you file your tax return.

      Step 4 (optional).

      Step 4(a). Enter in this step the total of your other estimated income for the year, if any. You shouldn’t include income from any jobs or self-employment. If you complete Step 4(a), you likely won’t have to make estimated tax payments for that income. If you prefer to pay estimated tax rather than having tax on other income withheld from your paycheck, see Form 1040-ES, Estimated Tax for Individuals.

      Step 4(b). Enter in this step the amount from the Deductions Worksheet, line 5, if you expect to claim deductions other than the basic standard deduction on your 2020 tax return and want to reduce your withholding to account for these deductions. This includes both itemized deductions and other deductions such as for student loan interest and IRAs.

      Step 4(c). Enter in this step any additional tax you want withheld from your pay each pay period, including any amounts from the Multiple Jobs Worksheet, line 4. Entering an amount here will reduce your paycheck and will either increase your refund or reduce any amount of tax that you owe.

      Step 2(b)—Multiple Jobs Worksheet (Keep for your records.)

      If you choose the option in Step 2(b) on Form W-4, complete this worksheet (which calculates the total extra tax for all jobs) on only ONE Form W-4. Withholding will be most accurate if you complete the worksheet and enter the result on the Form W-4 for the highest paying job.

      Note: If more than one job has annual wages of more than $120,000 or there are more than three jobs, see Pub. 505 for additional tables; or, you can use the online withholding estimator at www.irs.gov/W4App.

      1 Two jobs. If you have two jobs or you’re married filing jointly and you and your spouse each have onejob, find the amount from the appropriate table on page 4. Using the “Higher Paying Job” row and the“Lower Paying Job” column, find the value at the intersection of the two household salaries and enter that
      value on line 1. Then, skip to line 3
      1
      2 Three jobs.. If you and/or your spouse have three jobs at the same time, complete lines 2a, 2b, and 2c below. Otherwise, skip to line 3.
      a) Find the amount from the appropriate table on page 4 using the annual wages from the highest paying job in the “Higher Paying Job” row and the annual wages for your next highest paying jobin the “Lower Paying Job” column. Find the value at the intersection of
      the two household salaries and enter that value on line 2a
      2a
      b) Add the annual wages of the two highest paying jobs from line 2a together and use the total as the wages in the “Higher Paying Job” row and use the annual wages for your third job in the “Lower Paying
      Job” column to find the amount from the appropriate table on page 4 and enter this amount on line 2b
      2b

      c) Add the amounts from lines 2a and 2b and enter the result on line 2c
      2c
      3Enter the number of pay periods per year for the highest paying job. For example, if that job
      paysweekly, enter 52; if it pays every other week, enter 26; if it pays monthly, enter 12, etc.
      3
      4Divide the annual amount on line 1 or line 2c by the number of pay periods on line 3. Enter thisamount here and in Step 4(c) of Form W-4 for the highest paying job (along with any other additionalamount
      you want withheld)
