CHILD PROTECTION LAW (EXCERPT)
Act 238 of 1975
722.627j Individual not named in central registry case as perpetrator of child abuse or neglect; documentation; receipt of central registry clearance information; request; automated systems.
(1) Upon written request, the department may provide to an individual, or whoever is appropriate, documentation stating that the individual is not named in a central registry case as the perpetrator of child abuse or child neglect.
(2) An individual or the department may share the document provided in subsection (1) with whoever is appropriate for the purpose of seeking employment or serving as a volunteer if that employment or volunteer work will include contact with children.
(3) An employer, a person or agency to whom an individual is applying for employment, or a volunteer agency, with appropriate authorization and identification from the individual, may request and receive central registry clearance information if that employment or volunteer work will include contact with children.
(4) The department may develop an automated system that will allow an individual applying for child-related employment or seeking to volunteer in a capacity that would allow unsupervised access to a child for whom the individual is not a person responsible for that child's health or welfare to be listed in that system if a screening of the individual finds that he or she has not been named in a central registry case as the perpetrator of child abuse or child neglect. The automated system developed under this section shall provide for public access to the list of individuals who have been screened for the purposes of complying with this section. An automated system developed under this section shall have appropriate safeguards and procedures to ensure that information that is confidential under this act, state law, or federal law is not accessible or disclosed through that system.
