Staffing Agency CAPS Checks

Concerning a requirement that staffing agencies perform a CAPS check when providing employees who will work with at-risk adults.
2023 Regular Session
Human Services
Bill Summary

Under current law, when an employer is going to hire a person to work in a position in which the person has contact with at-risk adults, the employer must perform a check of the system that contains substantiated claims of mistreatment against an at-risk adult (CAPS check). The bill requires a staffing agency that provides employees who will have contact with at-risk adults to perform a CAPS check and to provide the results to the employer.

Under current law, disclosure of a report of mistreatment or neglect is generally only allowed with a court order. The bill clarifies a court order is not required when the report is disclosed for purposes of a guardian's appeal of a substantiated case of at-risk adult mistreatment.
