Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    (1) material misstatement in furnishing information to the Department;
    (2) willfully violating this Act, or of the rules promulgated thereunder;
    (3) conviction of any crime under the laws of the United States or any state or territory thereof which is a felony or which is a misdemeanor, an essential element of which is dishonesty, or of any crime which is directly related to the duties of a child protective investigator or a child welfare specialist;
    (4) making any misrepresentation for the purpose of obtaining certification;
    (5) having demonstrated incompetence to act as a child protective investigator or child welfare specialist in such a manner as to endanger the safety of the public;
    (6) willfully aiding or assisting another person in violating any provisions of this Act or rules;
    (7) engaging in unethical or unprofessional conduct of a character likely to deceive, defraud or harm the public;
    (8) willfully making or filing false records or reports in the capacity of a child protective investigator or child welfare specialist, including but not limited to false records filed with the State agencies or department;
    (9) physical or mental deterioration which results in the inability to perform the duties of the profession with reasonable judgment, skill or safety as determined by a qualified physician;
    (10) gross negligence;

    (b) The determination by a circuit court that a certified child protective investigator or child welfare specialist is subject to involuntary admission or judicial admission as provided in the Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities Code, as now or hereafter amended, operates as an automatic suspension. Such suspension will end only upon a release of the patient from such involuntary admission or judicial admission.
