Employers Requesting a Registry Check
Under Vermont law, you may request a search to help you decide whether to hire or retain a specific individual to provide care, custody, treatment, transportation, or supervision of children or vulnerable adults—on either a paid or volunteer basis.
You may submit a request concerning:
How do I request a search?
What happens next?
If you are entitled to a search, we will do our best to complete it within 10 business days.
We will notify you of our findings in writing. If the individual is found on the Registry, you will be told the date and nature of the finding. The individual will also be notified.
Where can I get more information?
For more information about registry checks, please call DCF’s Family Services Division at (802) 241-6474.
Note: If you are a regulated child care provider in Vermont, this process does not apply to you. Please contact the Child Development Division at (802) 241-3110 for more information.
