What is the Central Registry?

Posted on by John J. Ghidini

If the Department of Children and Families determines that a parent is "responsible for an act or acts of child abuse or neglect", that parent can be placed on the Central Registry. The Central Registry can be accessed during a background check if the parent is "seeking employment, licensing or certification". Placement on the Central Registry can be challenged at the time that the placement occurs.
