Background Screening

The laws governing background screening of individuals who work with certain vulnerable Floridians, including elders, have been significantly modified. The following documents summarize the changes in the law, provide guidance for submitting screening requests, and explain the steps the Department of Elder Affairs is taking to implement the new law.
