Justice Center Authorized Persons are approved and vetted to be able to submit required pre-employment hiring checks against the Staff Exclusion List (SEL) as well as submit final administrative actions outcomes for subjects that were substantiated for allegations of abuse or neglect.
The Justice Center maintains a Vulnerable Persons' Central Register (VPCR) that includes a Staff Exclusion List (SEL) containing the names of individuals who have committed serious acts of abuse and neglect and are deemed ineligible to work in a position involving regular and substantial contact with a service recipient. Providers must request the Justice Center to conduct a check of the SEL before determining whether to hire or otherwise allow “any person” to have regular and substantial contact with a service recipient. “Any person” can include an employee, administrator, consultant, intern, volunteer, or contractor.
Provider agencies that are licensed or certified by a State Oversight Agency (OPWDD, OMH, OASAS, OCFS or DOH) and/or are under the jurisdiction of the Justice Center are required to submit information about what administrative actions, if any, the agency took with respect to all subjects of substantiated allegations of abuse or neglect.
