On March 19, 2018, Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb signed legislation (S.B. 301) relating to criminal history checks for home health workers. The law provides that an expanded criminal history check may be used instead of certain background checks and criminal history checks for such workers. The law also prohibits an expanded criminal history check from including certain criminal history information and provides that an expanded criminal history check satisfies the Division of Aging’s criminal history requirements.
The law is effective July 1, 2018.
