The first time it was cited (1/2019), the staff member was in contact with children as she had been a former employee with a completed OBI. However, once the director was made aware of the seriousness of the violation, she made it a top priority to prevent this in the future. She mistakenly wrote staff hire dates as the days they were interviewed and offered jobs. However, they did not begin working with children, nor get paid until after she received documentation from OBI. She considered someone starting employment when they are performing job duties and getting paid. This is not specified in the regulation. In the future director will not doing any paperwork or training until OBI is received.
