Home Care Registry Becomes Law in Massachusetts

Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker signed a law to establish a registry for home care workers employed by state-contracted in-home care agencies on Nov. 24.

The registry has drawn controversy over whether it sufficiently protects worker privacy. The law requires state-contracted home care workers to include their name, gender, home and mailing addresses, job title and training or certifications. Advocates for the law say it will empower workers and provide industry oversight, according to the Boston Herald.
