Criminal Record Clearance Requirements

RCFE licensees, managers and direct care employees must be criminally cleared prior to employment, residence, or initial presence in a RCFE Community. Criminal Clearance is an even larger area of liability for RCFE Communities today, than it was 10 years ago. Because some licenses don’t understand that staff who are not criminally cleared can place the Community’s residents at risk for abuse and exploitation, CDSS-CCLD have increased fines for RCFE staff who have not obtained a criminal report.

These fines for failure to “print” are now up to $500.00 (per employee who is not cleared) for the first violation and up to $3,000.00 for repeat violations within the same twelve (12) month period (per employee who is not cleared).

The Primary Objective of this webinar will be to discuss the importance of employee’s Criminal Record Clearances or Exemptions on a regular basis. These are:

  • CCLD Criminal Record Clearances
  • Criminal Record Exemption requests
  • The Penalties for Not Having a Criminal Record Clearance
  • Criminal Record Transfer Requests
  • Exclusion Orders (and CDSS Exclusion Order Verifications)
  • The Criminal Record Appeal Procedures
  • Criminal Record Forms
