To help protect people who receive health care and human services, individuals with certain criminal or maltreatment histories are disqualified by law from working in various settings that serve children and vulnerable adults. Disqualifications can also apply to owners and managers. Individuals who are disqualified can request a reconsideration. A disqualification is an act that prevents someone from providing direct contact or having access to people receiving services.
