Urge Governor Brown to Sign AB 1437
AB 1437 allows a cleared worker to be associated with all the facilities operated by the same owner by filing a single form eliminating the need for filing multiple forms for transfer among those facilities.

Currently, every time a worker goes to work at another facility even on a temporary basis to fill in for an absent worker, a form must be filed with the Community Care Licensing Division to transfer the worker's criminal background clearance to that other location even if the location is operated by the same licensee. Failure to file the form before the worker transfers can draw fines of $100 a day up to $500 -- even though the worker in fact has a criminal background clearance.

SUBJECT: Urge signature on AB 1437
Dear Governor Brown:

6Beds, Inc. is an association of more than 2,000 small-home residential care facilities for the elderly (RCFEs) and adult residential facilities (ARFs) located all across California.

6Beds is sponsoring AB 1437 in an effort to streamline the process of associating workers who have passed criminal background checks to multiple facilities operated by the same licensee in order to reduce administrative work for both our members and the Community Care Licensing Division of the Department of Social Services, all while still protecting the safety and well-being of residents.

Currently, every time a worker goes to work at another facility even on a temporary basis to fill in for an absent worker, a form must be filed with the Community Care Licensing Division to transfer the worker's criminal background clearance to that other location even if the location is operated by the same licensee. Failure to file the form before the worker transfers can draw fines of $100 a day up to $500 -- even though the worker in fact has a criminal background clearance.

AB 1437 allows a cleared worker to be associated with all the facilities operated by the same owner by filing a single form, eliminating the need for filing multiple forms for transfer among those facilities. The bill maintains clear responsibility in the licensee for assuring workers have criminal background clearances and for knowing at all times where workers are located.

We believe the bill as drafted will save time and costs for both our members and the Department while fully protecting facility residents from dealing with individuals who don't have criminal background clearances.

We respectfully urge you to sign AB 1437.
