Request a Registry Check: Out of State

Vermont law allows employers & employment agencies to request a registry check to determine whether to hire/retain an individual to provide care, custody, treatment, transportation or supervision of children or vulnerable adults.

Who may I request a search on?

  • A current employee, volunteer, grantee or contractor.
  • An individual to whom you've given a conditional offer of a contract, volunteer position, or employment.

How do I request a search?

  1. Have the indivdual you're requesting a search for complete the Request for a Child Protection Registry Check: SELF.
  2. Have the form notarized by an official notary public.
  3. Mail the completed form, by US Postal Service, to the address at the bottom of the form.   
  4. If they've chosen to get the results by mail, include a self-addressed, stamped envelope.

What happens next?

  1. If you're entitled to a search, we'll do our best to complete it within 25 business days.
  2. We'll notify you of our findings in writing.
  3. If the individual is found on the registry, we'll tell you the date and nature of the finding and notify the individual.
