I like the idea of getting a report from the past employer, but frequently you are asked not to call them for fear of being fired from where they are currently working. Rarely, will the former employer give a detrimental report.
The better way to handle this is to have DSS handle the reports and check for IDD employees as they now check for CPS. This would be a third party evaluating the complaints from the employer vs employee. This system hopefully would keep everyone honest in their reports.
The CHRIS system keeps information of abuse, neglect and Human Rights infractions, this would also be an excellent back-up or beginning in forming this list.
