Pennsylvania Amends Background Check Requirements for Employees with Contact with Children
Pennsylvania amended section 6344(m) of the Child Protective Services Law effective December 31, 2019. The law calls for specific requirements concerning background checks for employees who have contact with children, as well as a shorter exemption period to comply with the requirements, as long as specific conditions are met. If you are an employer, administrator, supervisor, or other person responsible for employment decisions in Pennsylvania and your employees have contact with children, we provide the following resources, so you can ensure you are in compliance. National Law Review summarized the amendments here. And the text of the law can be found here.
