HB17-1135 - Portability Background Checks Child Care Workers

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning the portability of employment background checks for a child care worker who works for the same common ownership entity.

The bill creates a new provision that allows a child care worker who is employed in a licensed facility that is wholly owned, operated, and controlled by a common ownership group or school district to use a single completed fingerprint-based criminal history record check and a check of the records and reports of child abuse or neglect maintained by the department of human services to satisfy the requirements of the necessary background checks if the employee also works for or transfers to another licensed facility that is owned, operated, or controlled by the same common ownership group or school district, provided all other requirements for employment are met.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
