§ 28-57-7. Family childcare providers.
CCAP family childcare providers shall accrue and may use paid sick and safe leave in the same manner as do employees under this chapter. The implementation, but not the amount, of paid sick and safe leave for CCAP family childcare providers shall be a subject of negotiation with the director of the department of administration under § 40-6.6-4. The department of human services shall promulgate any necessary regulations to implement the requirement of paid sick and safe leave for CCAP family childcare providers. Nothing in this chapter shall be construed to make CCAP family childcare providers employees of the state for any purpose, including for the purposes of eligibility for the state employee pension program or state employee health benefits.
