Summary:
Mental health; community services boards. Requires any applicant who accepts employment in any direct client care position with the community services board or behavioral health authority to submit to fingerprinting and provide personal descriptive information to be forwarded through the Central Criminal Records Exchange to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for the purpose of obtaining national criminal history record information regarding such applicant. If any applicant is denied employment because of information appearing on the criminal history record and the applicant disputes the information upon which the denial was based, the Central Criminal Records Exchange must, upon request, furnish the applicant the procedures for obtaining a copy of the criminal history record from the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The information provided to the executive director of any community services board or behavioral health authority must not be disseminated except as provided in this section. The community services boards and behavioral health authorities must also require, as a condition of employment for all such applicants, written consent and personal information necessary to obtain a search of the registry of founded complaints of child abuse and neglect maintained by the Department of Social Services pursuant to 63.1-248.8. The cost of obtaining the criminal history record and search of the child abuse and neglect registry record will be borne by the applicant, unless the community services board or behavioral health authority, at its option, decides to pay such cost.

D. As used in this section, the term "direct client care position" means any position with a job description that includes responsibility for (i) treatment, case management, health, safety, development or well-being of a client, or (ii) immediately supervising a person in a position with such responsibility.
