    Bill Summary

    Under present law, each organization providing mental health and developmental disability services must have a criminal background check performed on each employee whose responsibilities include direct contact with or direct responsibility for service recipients.

    Within 10 days of employment or within 10 days of a change of responsibilities that includes direct contact with or direct responsibility for service recipients, the employee must, among other things: supply fingerprint samples to be submitted for a criminal history records check to be conducted by the TBI or FBI; or release information for a criminal background investigation by a state licensed private investigation company. This bill revises this provision to clarify that the employee must supply fingerprint samples to be submitted for a nationwide criminal history records check to be conducted by the TBI, FBI or a state-licensed private investigation company. This bill makes a similar change in regard to the requirement that employees of organizations that contract with the division of intellectual disabilities services for residential services, day services or supported employment services supply fingerprints for a criminal background check.

    This bill also requires all of the organizations described above to check for each employee the registry, maintained by the department of health, that contains the names of any persons who have been determined to have abused, neglected, misappropriated or exploited the property of vulnerable individuals. No individual listed on the registry may be hired or otherwise permitted to provide services in the organization.

    ON APRIL 21, 2011, THE SENATE ADOPTED AMENDMENT #1 AND PASSED SENATE BILL 1921, AS AMENDED.

    AMENDMENT #1 removes all of the changes and additions to present law described in the bill summary except the requirement that all organizations that supply mental health and developmental disability services check the registry an not hire or use as a volunteer any individual listed on the registry. This amendment specifies that such requirements apply to organizations which contract with the division of intellectual disabilities services for residential services, day services or supported employment services,
