As of December 31 2014, Pennsylvania Act 153 of 2014 requires that new employees, volunteers, and those with expired clearances who have direct contact and care for children must obtain three clearances which are then valid for 36 months (3 years). This law also applies to persons over the age of 14 working paid positions, revealing information if the minor had been convicted as an adult.
Beginning December 31, 2014, all paid employees who are, “responsible for the welfare of a child or having direct contact with children” are to complete the clearances below prior to the commencement of service. Volunteers need to complete them prior to participation beginning July 1, 2015. We note that per the published Pennsylvania Department of Human Services Frequently Asked Questions, “If you were approved as a volunteer before July 1, 2015, and do not have clearances (because you previously were not required to obtain clearances) you have until July 1, 2016, to get your clearances.”
The required background checks include:
·Criminal History Record Information obtained from the Pennsylvania State Police ($0 fee volunteers)
·Child Abuse Clearance obtained through the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services certifying the applicant is not named in the statewide database “as the alleged perpetrator in a pending child abuse investigation or as the perpetrator of a founded report or indicated report” of child abuse.” ($0 fee for volunteers)
·Federal Criminal History Record Information obtained by submitting a full set of fingerprints to Cogent Systems for submission to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. ($27.50 fee)
Volunteersare not required to complete the Federal Criminal History check if they have lived continuously in Pennsylvania over the previous 10 years and are working an unpaid position. However, they must swear or affirm in writing that they are not barred from volunteering due to a conviction or offense under §6344(c) using the form prescribed by Pennsylvania
Unpaid volunteers committed to less than 30 days can provide clearances from their home state or county. Those volunteering longer than 30 days must obtain clearance through the State of Pennsylvania.
The law does not require employers to pay for their employee’s background check fees. All three background checks are initiated online by the employee. As the law stands now, an employee must complete new background checks for each new employer. Employees cannot use existing clearances to begin employment with a new employer, or volunteer with another organization, even though the certificates are valid for three years.
