Senate Bill 350 – Passed

Statutory Changes for Criminal Background History
Effective: July 01, 2016

Pursuant to Senate Enrolled Act No. 350, Indiana will no longer recognize the use of a “limited criminal history.”

Criminal history background checks for home health workers will be necessary to be compliant beginning July 1, 2016. This will require a home health care agency or personal services agency to obtain a national criminal history background check or an expanded criminal history check on employees. (Current law requires a limited criminal history record unless certain circumstances exist that would require a national criminal history background check or an expanded criminal history check.)
