Current Bill Summary

- Prepared by Senate Research -

HB 646 - Under current law, the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education pays monthly to each sheltered workshop a sum equal to the amount calculated under statute, but at least the amount necessary to ensure that at least $21 is paid for each 6 hour or longer day worked by a handicapped employee. This act adds language that such 6 hour or longer days worked shall be for each standard workweek of up to and including 38 hours worked. For each handicapped worker employed by a sheltered workshop for less than a 38 hour week or a 6 hour day, the workshop shall receive a percentage of the corresponding amount normally paid based on the percentage of time worked by the handicapped employee.

This act is substantially similar to SB 233 (2019).
