Re: CPS Ruling on Background Check?
CPS investigations/cases can show up on a background check depending on findings in the cases & according to how thorough of a background check the employer does.
If a child is found not to have been abused or neglected, federal law says that you should not be listed in any place accessible to the general public or to people who do employment or background checks. If you find your name wrongfully listed, you can appeal to have your name removed.
You will need to check with your state's Department of Family and Protective Services to see if the reports/cases are in the central registery of investigated cases of child abuse or neglect and if so, if you can have them removed to where they are not accessible to the general public due to the outcome. (abuse/neglect ruled out)
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
