Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Department of Professional Regulation Law of the Civil Administrative Code of Illinois. Adds involuntary sexual servitude of a minor to the offenses for which a health care worker license can be revoked. Provides that if a licensed health care worker has been convicted of a forcible felony, other than a forcible felony requiring registration under the Sex Offender Registration Act or involuntary sexual servitude of a minor that is a forcible felony, and the health care worker has had his or her license revoked, the health care worker may petition the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation to restore his or her license. Establishes factors that the Department shall consider in determining whether a license shall be restored. Further provides that this process for petition and review by the Department shall apply to a person whose licensed is denied under these provisions.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Requires that the conviction for the forcible felony occur more than 5 years before the date the petition is filed.

House Floor Amendment No. 1
Adds reference to:
225 ILCS 46/25
225 ILCS 46/33
225 ILCS 46/40

Replaces everything after the enacting clause with the engrossed bill with the following changes: Amends the Health Care Worker Background Check Act. Provides that no health care employer shall knowingly hire, employ, or retain any individual in a position with certain health care related duties who have been convicted of committing or attempting to commit offenses concerning the manufacture, delivery, or possession with intent to deliver or manufacture cannabis in excess of 10 grams (rather than any amount of cannabis). In provisions of the Act concerning fingerprint-based criminal history records check, provides that if an applicant or employee has a waiver for one or more disqualifying offenses pursuant to the Act and he or she is otherwise eligible to work, the Department of Public Health shall report that the applicant or employee is eligible to work, and shall not report information regarding the waiver or list the specific disqualifying offenses, if any. Makes similar changes to provisions concerning waiver. Provides that upon inquiry of a health care employer, the Department shall inform the inquiring party if a waiver is pending. Provides that the Department shall (rather than must) act upon a waiver request within 30 days. Makes other changes.

House Floor Amendment No. 2
Deletes reference to:
225 ILCS 46/25
225 ILCS 46/33
225 ILCS 46/40

Replaces everything after the enacting clause with the bill as engrossed with the following changes: In provisions concerning health care worker licensure actions and sex crimes, provides that a health care worker that has been convicted of a forcible felony, other than a forcible felony requiring registration under the Sex Offender Registration Act or involuntary sexual servitude of a minor that is a forcible felony, and the health care worker has had his or her license revoked, the health care worker may petition the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation to restore his or her license if more than 5 years have passed since the conviction or more than 3 years have passed since the health care worker's release from confinement for that conviction, whichever is later. Provides that the Department may also consider other evidence of rehabilitation, along with any voluntary remedial actions taken by the health care worker, when determining whether a license shall be restored. Makes other changes.
