BILL NUMBER:S1977 REVISED MEMO 05/02/201

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the social services law, in relation
to the access of certain information contained in the central register
of child abuse and maltreatment

PURPOSE:

Is to allow a camp who is considering a person for employment shall
upon receipt have access to reports from the child abuse and
maltreatment reports on file with statewide central register of child
abuse and maltreatment.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Adds a new subparagraph (iv) is to read as follows:

(iv) A camp subject to the provisions of article thirteen-A or
thirteen-B of the public health law may inquire of the office of
children and family services, and the office shall, upon receipt of
such inquiry and subject to the provisions of paragraph (e) of this
subdivision, inform such agency and the subject of the inquiry whether
any person who is actively being considered for employment and who
will have the potential for regular and substantial contact with
children who are cared for by the agency, is the subject of an
indicated child abuse and maltreatment report on file with the
statewide central register of child abuse and maltreatment.

JUSTIFICATION:

Due to the closeness in which camp employees work with children of all
ages, it is imperative that the camp have access to all reports on
potential employees. Giving the camp the ability to get a report from
the statewide central register of child abuse and maltreatment is one
step they can take in protecting kids.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

2012 Passed Senate
2013 Referred to Committee on Children and Families

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

None

EFFECTIVE DATE:

Immediately.
