Special Employment Practices

General Provisions:

Delaware’s Special Employment Practice Laws include 19 Del.C. §708 (Special Employment Practices relating to Health Care and Child Care facilities), 11 Del.C. §8563 (Child Abuse Registry Check), and 11 Del.C. §8564 (Requirement for Adult Abuse Registry Check).

Together, the laws require employers who operate health care and child care businesses to obtain a reference check, or “service letter,” and check two registries to insure that they are not hiring individuals with a past history of violent behavior, or who have engaged in abuse or neglect to adults and children who are dependent on their care.
