Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Abused and Neglected Child Reporting Act. Provides that a parent or legal guardian employing an individual to care for his or her minor child may request from the individual the results of a check on the individual through the Child Abuse and Neglect Tracking System by submitting the same form and paying the same fee that would be submitted by an entity required by law to request such a background check on an employee or volunteer for the purpose of determining whether there has been an indicated finding of child abuse or neglect for the individual. Requires the form to contain the signature of the individual consenting to the background check. Requires the Department of Children and Family Services to notify the individual on whom the background check was completed of the results. Provides that the Department shall make the form for requesting a check of the Child Abuse and Neglect Tracking System available on its website along with information on how to locate a child-care provider certified or licensed by the Department and how to request a criminal background check for a child-care provider. Requires the Department to adopt rules to implement the provisions of the amendatory Act.
