The licensee or certificate holder shall submit the notarized criminal conviction record release authorization form to the division of state police after an applicant accepts a conditional offer of employment. The licensee or certificate holder shall review the results of the criminal conviction record check before making a final offer of employment. [An employee shall not begin work before the final offer of employment is made.] Pending the results of the criminal conviction record check an employee may begin working provisionally if he or she is under the direct supervision of a licensed staff person and he or she has revealed no disqualifying criminal history on the notarized criminal conviction record release authorization form.
