On Monday, June 27, 2011, Caring Professionals Homecare sent out a voicemail blast to all employees and clients (nearly 550 people in total) stating the following as it relates to the potential State of Minnesota government shutdown:
“Hi, this is Caring Professionals Homecare with an important update for all clients and employees.
As you may already know, the State of Minnesota does not have an approved budget to fund the operations of state government for the fiscal year that begins on July 1, 2011. While courts are deciding what is considered critical services and while we wait for a final approved budget, please DO NOT PANIC.
We would like to our staff to continue working with their assigned clients and document hours worked on timecards as normal. Caring Professionals Homecare remains financially sound and will keep operating during these uncertain times. We will update you accordingly. Thank you.”
