Justice Center - Questions and Answers

Between July 1, 2013 - July 14, 2013, since no one will be on the Staff Exclusion List, may a provider proceed with the hiring process before receiving a response from the Justice Center to the SEL check request?

The law requiring a check of the Staff Exclusion List (SEL) prior to making a hiring determination takes effect on July 1, 2013. However, between July 1, 2013 - July 14, 2013, since no one will be on the SEL, a provider may proceed with the hiring process before receiving a response from the Justice Center to the SEL check request.

IMPORTANT: this doesn't mean that a provider may skip the SEL request prior to making a hiring determination. Providers must FIRST submit the SEL Check Request form via fax to the Justice Center's Criminal Background Check (CBC) Unit and then may immediately procced with the hiring process, including CBC check (if required). The exception above will only apply between July 1, 2013 and July 14, 2013.
