Overview: Section 9C.3 of S.L. 2022-74 amends the background check provisions of child care licensing laws to require facilities to check the criminal backgrounds of their employees every five years, rather than every three years. It also allows new employees whose criminal background checks have not yet come back to be provisionally employed, provided they are supervised by another employee at all times. Finally, it requires the Department of Health and Human Services to report to the Joint Legislative Oversight Committee on Health and Human Services on the number of provisionally employed child care providers. Beginning in 2022, the report must be made annually by December 1.
